SuSe and whoever else also support sendmail, postfix, http, etc.. but
Red Hat still includes them.  Point being? :)

It may be out, but doesn't mean it's not stable or stable enough.  I
believe Red Hat would include anything that helps make their distro(s) a
better product, but only as long as it goes through Q/A and passes.  And
if something major as a database or file system has problems, no reason
to include it if your going to have to spend money just to keep trying
to fix the problem it creates and not be able to spend money on
developing new things or helping improve old things.

I'm sure there are better explanations out there, then again maybe I am
way off topic on reasoning, so someone can chime in if I'm off base
and/or wrong.
