[CentOS-devel] Inclusion of rhnlib

I'd like to request the inclusion of the upstream rhnlib package into 
CentOS. Even though RHN in itself does not work if you have no 
entitlement, mrepo uses rhnlib python modules to archive updates from RHN 
for RHEL.

Without rhnlib, CentOS cannot be used to set up an internal RHN mirror for 
RHEL packages using mrepo. And I know of people that do (and need to 
manually copy an rhnlib package from RHEL).

Besides, rhnlib does ship with CentOS 4 :)

Thanks for considering.
