It is still not something I want to do to a released product, or even Fedora 7 
after the feature freeze.  The generation of the delta rpms, the layout, the 
use of the plugin, etc.. these are all codepaths that need more 
exposure/testing during an open development phase.  I think it's great that 
you guys have gotten it to the point it is now, and I really look forward to 
seeing it get wider use once we start up Fedora 8.  I just don't want to add 
new features/functionality into 7 and 6.
