I am not sure if much of that stuff is going to make it into EL4 
codebase. It _might_ help if you could perhaps attempt a backport and 
submit patches upstream.

Alternatively, if its possible to build some of this functionality into 
byte sized rpm's - we could perhaps build and host in CentOSPlus. I dont 
have the time to look at this at the moment, and I know Johnny and Pasi 
are pretty busy as well. Would someone like to contribute ?
