Wha?? Upgrades from FC3 -> FC4 are not going to work?  I must have 
missed something.  Can someone confirm that this is true, or better yet, 
not true?  If there's no upgrade path from FCX -> FCY, then the six 
month release cycle + Red Hat's EOL policy will orphan users on 
un-upgradeable systems.
