CentOS-4 and 5 are built using the mock-0.6 packages, thats unlikely to 
change unless there is a good reason - speed / performance wins on 
desktop machines with low resource levels are are not a good reason. 
Sticking with the process that works and does what it needs to in a 
reliable manner is worth a lot more. Of course, there are things that 
are important from the distro perspective, you are welcome to use 
whatever your site preferences might be.

For CentOS-6, yes were going to clearly need a more recent mock. If you 
are building for c6 now, use the epel packages that should be a good 
base to develop from.
