not at all -- I am saying that mock is a moving target as to 
bugs, features, and approach if you move beyond the one we 
ship in (as I recall) 'extras'

In such cases the proper support venue regarding mock use is 
elsewhere, as we at centos are focused on supporting what we 
ship, rather than trying to know an answer for all bugs in all 
variations of all software everywhere
