just to be pedantic, it's not a rawhide "install" you'd be looking at 
here; it's an *update* based on rawhide.  the question was, if you were
looking at doing a massive update based on the rawhide repo, would
having the updates or testing repos in your yum.conf potentially cause
problems?

and, based on some of the previous postings, technically, that should
work, since upgrading based on rawhide is supposed to simulate upgrading
to the next release, which should work.

but, realistically, who knows?
