        Yes, I'm pretty sure they did; but Apple machines used to do
that, and it was no better -- you still had to catch the right moment to
start holding, if not also when to let go. It was one of the reasons I
got rid of my Apple machine, years ago: trying to install anything new
was more trouble than the machine was worth.

        I hope the Fedora developers find some less ticklish alternative.
