The problem is not to package RT, or the gazillon perl module it uses, but
to maintain that stuff afterwards.

(hint : the RT people make their bread and butter selling stuff like
installation services, making the whole thing less convoluted and better
documented is not in their best interests. They won't actively fight it,
but neither will they think twice about using new perl modules that may be
difficult to package cleanly in Fedora)
