What are they doing in regard to python? Install alongside? Break the
python on the machine (I'm not really inclined to test that at the
moment)? What's with php (oh my god, another php-current source)?

If that is what makes this special (meaning installs alongside things
from CentOS), then a longer document about the repo would be needed, as
to what can happen - or won't - when you have 2 pythons on the machine, etc.
