One thing I did neglect to mention here, as RHEL4 is going to be
based off of the FC3 kernel, any features deemed worthy of
inclusion in RHEL4 will very likely appear in FC3 too.
(Both to maximise testing, and usage of resources [Biggest
resource in point here being myself and Arjan's time]).

For the most part though, I wouldn't expect anything really
invasive on the scale that NPTL was to Red Hat Linux 9 for example.

The invasive stuff in FC is currently limited to 4g/4g and
execshield. Hopefully it'll stay that way.
