It will temporarily fix the problem...  But in n years, we will have once more 
the same discussion and will hope centos 7 will solve this problem...  Rinse and 
repeat  ^_^
On the opposite side, I recently tried to explain to some mplayer dev why having 
dev (alpha,beta,rc) and prod(stable) versions was a good idea... but they stood 
by their "alaways compile the latest svn version" and "it helps debug the 
application faster" (true, but a pain for users) stances.
