Is this planned for Fedora 13 or 14?  We're about to branch Fedora 13
away from rawhide, and we're already a week beyond the feature freeze.
A change of this magnitude really does feel like it runs afoul of the
feature freeze policy:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Feature_Freeze_Policy

so if you want it on Fedora 13, you'll have to follow the exception
process there.

I understand the problem this is trying to solve, and I agree with this
solution, but it is a significant change that will need some extra
attention on it.
