[...] snipped nifty step thru

Hey thanks.  I'd never thought to do that in the 7-8 yrs I've been
using redhat then fedora.  Seeing it in print it looks terribly
obvious. hehe.

I like new stuff, and have found over the years that I can run from
rawhide with a little care.  Even before there was a fedora, there was
rawhide.  From experience I'd say rawhide since the Advent of fedora
is more likely to be stable than before.

I also suspect the dire warning about rawhide are a little overstated.
