A custom query tool would be very nice.  Also I note that there are currently
36098 machines listed with kernel 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7, and only 259 listed
with 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7.  This would imply that a lot of people allowed
the system to send their profile during F7 install, but few have re-sent their
profile after updating to the newer kernel.

It would be really nice if more people kept their profiles up to date - but then
as you say you are dependent on people doing checkins and deleting stale
profiles and this cannot easily be automated without infringing privacy.

Anyway good luck with smolt - it is a useful facility even if there are more
refinements to be developed in time.
