I still ask myself why one would use the 'old' rhn tools from rhel to
connect against Spacewalk instead of the current ones.

Until these are not in sync, inclusion of the rhel packages does not
make much sense imho.

PS: To be paranoid: maybe RH is planning a migration path to 'upgrade'
from CentOS to RHEL, which is the only reason I see atm why the tools
should be integrated :)
