Not a chance of a supported version, though those packages were built on
my x86_64 fc4 box.

It won't be in FC5 either. There's absolutely no chance that it's
bug-free :-), and fixing the binfilter work will take a while to
complete anyway. 

There might be fedora tuned src.rpms at a later date which will be
buildable on x86_64 fc4/fc5 for those interesting in trying those out
for themselves instead.
