It's not head in the sand Jesse.  It's that following the daytime soap
opera that is rpm4 vs rpm5 vs jbj vs everyone else isn't the least bit
worth my time.  I seem to recall a vague announcement inside Red Hat
that went something like "We actually are working on RPM and we have
plans, we just aren't going into them at this time...stay tuned."  I
don't ever recall the follow up to that though...

You can try to pick on me all you want, but the simple fact of the
matter is that it makes not one whit of difference to me.  You won't
make me feel guilty for not having the time to watch a soap opera
outside the scope of my normal daytime work.

This I agree with 100%.
