You assume the poor user has control over what AFS code he gets to deploy. 

But more to the point, the patch I see is a bugfix... if a mechanism
doesn't work and no one one wants to fix it, why the hell is it there
anyway? 

There are reasons the MIT AFS admins are pissed at RedHat, and this
sort of thing is one of them.  Granted, they start out angry.
