Have to agree with that one.  Ignoring it won't make it go away and, to
the general public, whoever that may be, makes Fedora look foolish,
IMHO, the equivalent of putting fingers in ears and going "Lalala I
can't hear you."   :)

However, as Rawhide is alpha/beta--I would think that it would be full
of debugging code that would slow it down, making it a poor choice for
comparision testing.  

For example, in FreeBSD's CURRENT, their UPDATING section always
explains that it's got a great deal of debugging code and that if one
wants to use it, they are advised to recompile the kernel, removing the
debuggging options.

Xander: What do you feel?
Anya: Upset, afraid of being without you, and a little hungry.
Xander: I meant about the house.
Anya: Oh. Still haunted.
