I don't think that's fair to say.  Since it wasn't included in Linus' 
standard kernel, what makes you think RH was going to support it, that 

I think our point is that it's no longer that difficult to maintain, and 
we're asking for it.

If it's really that big of a deal to the Fedora development team, even 
though there's been offers to help, I'll either wait for FC2, or I'll move 
my server to a different distribution...that's all.
