A) File a bug against RHEL-5Server and ask them to include python-imaging.


B) ignore upstream in this instance because they aren't playing nice with


C) let 5Server guys live with broken deps. Apparently nobody with a
Server license would ever want to use this anyways, so they should never
run into it. (yeah, right).

Personally, I would say to try (A), and then fall back to (B) if they
dont do (A).
