Thanks for the pointer. (That will teach me to remember to read the
Release Notes!)

Isn't this a show-stopper?  It eliminates a whole bunch of possible
testers and excercisers.  I can't use my main x686-class machine as a
testbed due to its use as a server for various other things on my net.
I'd dearly love to test out FC2-test1 in a complete install mode (I'm
already using yum/up2date to track the development tree.)
