oh good, -yeah, we have been debating going to 2.0.59 using this 
approach, so am going to just paste your comments into our document and 
run with it.

-right now you have done such a stellar job with the package repository 
my script just says yum install this or that -it's funny how it [my 
build script] shrinks down month by month -especially 64-bit stuff like 
libevent, xvfb, memcached, all these used to mean alot of source 
compiles and interruptions of the automated builds...  looks like 4.4 
has settled into a nice rhythm...

hopefully when Java goes GPL the whole chicken/egg thing there will 
cascade into a future cent release and I can move our developer machines 
off of fedora once and for all...
