In the atrpm case, they can do it and the result is more feature complete.
That all the added features were absolutely necessary is something else
entirely (meaning I'm not sure Axel tries very hard not to fork FC

distributions, it's probably easier for him to fork everything rather than
try to make the best decision for FC4/Raw Hide alone)
