I like that idea. I also really like the idea of adding in some kind of
postfix differentiator configured in /etc/sysconfig/kernel so that one
can still have a shared /boot between several Fedora/RHEL/whatever.

I might then configure:

/boot/vmlinuz-fedora10
/boot/vmlinuz-rawhide
/boot/vmlinuz-rhelX
