The desire to have Power5 support on Centos7 could lead to an interesting 
RHEL 7 on Power does not support POWER5.  This means that we could change 
CentOS to include it, but then that likely means the performance of 
CentOS7 on
POWER8 would suffer compared to RHEL7.

I'm the newbie here so will follow the lead of the community on how to 
solve.  It should be a great 
discussion, though.  I love the age-old engineering paradox (as I call 
it): cheap, fast, good, pick 2!
