you seem to miss the point completely, this is CentOS were talking about 
- there are inherint benefits of running a stable consolidated distro, 
one of which is that s/w on the distro works as expected.

I dont care if something does not work on some random setup. Were 
talking centos here, like I said before, if its debian you want to talk 
about - they have a bunch of mailing lists, please take your issue there.

I dont understand your point here, were talking about a set of pkgs that 
are put together in a distro to work with the other components of the 
distro. The guy who asked about what imapd to use on CentOS should not 
really be concerned about or influenced by how the setups' are done and 
the releative app acquisition and deployment process on debian ...

Would people say we've actually thrashed this issue out enough ? no 
wait. Dont answer that :)
