Well, I'd say my intent is to entertain as many people as I can, so CentOS
can retain and gain more users :). I'm willing to maintain as many variants
of docker to make everyone happy, but the current state of SIG package
maintenance on CentOS is probably not optimal for that. Perhaps once
dist-gits are available things will be easier. Or maybe I'm just doing it all
wrong (corrections welcome).

Sure, many devs on this list and this thread are in favor of the RH patches,
but then again, there are many users and Docker upstream itself looking for a
vanilla build. That's the reason we need to account for this case too.
