Wow, I'm a big fan of both Hyperion and Transmet and it had never
occured to me that Severn could have been a reference to Vita Severn!

And what if the double-meaning was intentional? That means that the
codenames morphed from Hyperion to Transmet (without actually changing
the codename) on the same release where the distro morphed from Red Hat
to Fedora. Somebody tell me if this was intentional and who to award the
geekpoints to if it is. =:)
