Meaning that when you want to do something you find a way to do so.


The thing is, that the purpose of the Fedora distribution is to be as clean as possible, when it comes to things like this. Even if means that a few things won't "work" straight out of the box, it's better than "contaminating" the distribution with potentially problematic stuff.

So in most cases (if not all), you'll find that these things are excluded on purpose and cannot be included without violating the Fedora policy. I, for one, applaud the exclusion of these things.
