It's not to late to say that ... and it is the way that the vast
majority of Updates go.  I updated more that 100 machines and only had 3
issues with DNS because for some reason the rndc.key and rndc.conf files
were moved to be an rpmnew file :(  ... that happened with upstream
product upgrades too.

One thing to keep in perspective when looking at the issues on the
mailing list is this ... there are more than a million CentOS machines
in the Wild ... (we estimate about 1.5 million based on updates) so the
vast majority of machines upgraded OK.
