Ouch. That seem like a recipe for disaster. What if RH would, out of the
blue, decide to actually release an official update to something we thought
was completely out of maintenance? Not likely to happen with 7.x, but maybe
one or two RHL9 updates will still trickle out. I think Seth's choice of not
touching the base RH package's version number is a better policy choice --
largely _because_ there is no upstream constant method. Instead, we should
leave whatever they do alone, and add after that.
