Well, yes, they are problematic. But don't do harm to kittens -- it's not
their fault ;-)

Nevertheless a lot of people want them. I think we should provide a
solution for them. I'm willing to maintain a special repo for them, but
I'd like to do that (and some other things) under the hood of the Fedora
