Why should Fedora care about Second Life? It is neither in the repos nor Free 
Software. You can just not upgrade cmake if it breaks your setup too badly. 
Some need features in cmake 2.6 to move forward. Fedora should not stand still 
for non-Free Software.

As for breakage in other apps, they can be fixed and sent upstream by 
maintainers or other volunteers. It wouldn't be pushed without testing in any 
case. If koji gets failed builds due to dependencies, it usually gets posted to 
the list.
