Updates for both RHEL and CentOS are dead fish in a barrel on the web.

Why not set up a web page listing any packages
that RHEL has that CentOS does not?

Endless recitations of out-of-date and available are
just a foggy blur, lacking even US Homeland security
color coding to minimize info overload.

For extra credit:
	Calculate and display the lag between RHEL <-> CentOS releasing.

And for those who simply MUST_BASH_CENTOS:
	mark all CentOS deficiencies in *BLINKING* RED 48pt type

It likely isn't an enormous amount of PHP to get that job done.
Alas C, not PHP, here, until I get to the RPM+PHP embedding todo++.
