I didn't knew that policy, sorry then.

I think the problem with omnibook is with the kernel, not Fedora. I
don't know the kernel development process in detail, so I don't know why
this module is not commited there. But anyway, I'm not the only one
using it, and I'm sure that the kernel hackers are aware of omnibook, so
there should be a good reason to keep it out of Linux. :)
