There must be something transmogrifying my emails before it reaches 
other subscribers of this list, either that or I am being 
unreasonable in thinking that by asking /if/ Fedora would consider 
*supporting* this configuration (i.e. in the future) that it would be 
clear that:

- I do not expect it to be supported already
- I am not complaining about software not working quite right now

E.g. I was impressed at how yum pretty much works (with minor 
tweaking to override which arch it think it's running on).

I didn't mean to complain or whinge or intend for people to think I 
had silly expectations of this being supported already. Apologies if 
I did and/or if that's how it came across.
