1) mission critical use of RHEL in a "life or death" environment,
let's say it is an ICU application in a hospital
2) miscreant exploits vulnerability in RHEL, rendering it useless, as
well as the 3 other machines performing the same function
3) experienced sysadmin diagnoses issue to the rpm level
4) e.s. loads build environment and the vulnerable SRPM and build
environment fails to produce good RPM
5) e.s., being a RH rate-payer, is unaware that CentOS Team and
Community has solved the issue with a kludge to the build environment
