Actually much less of a headache - in the case of libnl3, you really
*did* need to build with libnl of some sort enabled. Also, everything
was in place for the switch beforehand, unlike for Xen 4.2. The wrench
in the gears was that a freeze was put in place on the F18 branch right
after I had pushed the netcf update, but before the libvirt Fedora
maintainer could push a libvirt update - it was stuck in limbo for a
couple weeks and we suffered in the meantime.
