Why don't we do both?  Put it into centosplus AND submit the patched 
version to Red Hat.  Then, if Red Hat decides to make it the "official" 
version, we can remove it from centosplus and the "officail" srpm 
percolates to CentOS.  If Red Hat decides, for whatever reason, that 
they do not want to use it, we still have it in centosplus.

Just a thought,
