I think this needs a lot more discussion before it's considered. As
others have said, rebooting is often necessary with our current modus
operandi and whether we like it or not, it is consistent. Besides, most
people don't mind an *expected* reboot after they do a major upgrade.

Me, I normally set aside a weekend for Fedora major upgrades anyway.
It's not something I'm inclined to do without some planned downtime,
since the last two times I've had an hour of fixing to do afterward.
