Interesting, so Fedora no longer strictly serves as a base for RHEL
because of a couple of megabytes.

That's definitely good idea anyway, given how Phil only updates the
main documentation at every 4.x0 release.

Given that this bones those of us who need Exim by making the packages
completely unavailable, is there any chance that you could stick a
4.50-x SRPM somewhere (on the 'net, not anywhere painful) until the
