I think we've been through this before, but if EPEL would ship the same
version that Red Hat does of the layered products then there wouldn't be
any conflict for those who have the layered product and the one's who do
have the layered product can still enjoy the package. Or am I missing
something here?

Also, doesn't CentOS ship re-builds of the layared products?
