Does anyone know what the likelihood is of CentOS 6 and LTSP 5 being packaged?

RHEL 6 is in its second beta (of 3, probably) so it's starting to come into view over the horizon. I'm running two CentOS 5 servers now and am thankful for their stability -- they just work. Like others, though, I'd like to move to LTSP 5 and haven't had the time or energy to do look into doing it on my current systems. If CentOS-6/LTSP-5 were to be packaged (or LTSP-5 was a reasonably easy install to a base CentOS system) that would be terrific, I think.
