It is about providing consistent virtual provides, not real provides. In
my opinion switching to openmotif in the middle of a RHEL release
wouldn't be good (not to mention that openmotif and lesstif aren't ABI
compatible). And this is something I care about only if lesstif isn't
used in RHEL 6.

That's what I would like to know.
