The fact that it wasn't turned on at Alpha means it really shouldn't be
on now, not without FESCo approval.

We've got some licensing concerns with a pre-generated binary blob of
bits from other packages being shipped with the kernel package, and the
kernel srpm doesn't have any sources to match those binary blobs.

Those are my biggest issues.  I'd much prefer to see work continue on
dracut and have it available for F-12 users, but not default.  We only
have one more major test point, the Beta, and there is very little time
after the beta to repair such a critical function as our initrd
generation, and no opportunity to test such repairs.  It is simply too
late for F-12.
