Each has its advantages and disadvantages; people can choose what
works for them.  Hopefully - not too far in the future - people
won't have to choose, when binary package "flavours" are
implemented.  When that happens, a small effort will be needed to
define the FreeIPA flavour and ensure it gets included in the
official package repos.
