Nah. That's like killing a flea with the jackhammer. You don't often 
need *all* daemons to be up-to-date on any given system - and when you 
do, that's usually a tiny machine, like my personal mail/web server, in 
which case you can deal with the upgrades on a case-by-case basis.

Just "rpm -U" the 2.7 package and that's it. For a mail relay, the rest 
is good.
