Either way, I was just throwing it out as a discussion point.

Just curious, I have been studying this some more. You provide a direct
upgrade of 2.5.10 to 2.6.19 from atrpms, however, it doesn't appear
that you've attempted to rectify ABI problems with the upgrade. The
deps work out in favor of this upgrade; but, do the programs such as
memprof, scrollkeeper, kdelibs, etc. etc. all actually function
For example, gstreamer shows:
[pyvault at plain pyvault]$ ldd /usr/lib/libgstreamer-0.6.so
libxml2.so.2 => /usr/lib/libxml2.so.2 (0x00111000)
No one has seen any problems with this? Also, if we were to attempt to
keep the Core libs and files intact, how would we provide 2.5.10
through this link?
