There's proof from the horse's mouth that the CentOS team should
follow Browning's advice, namely:

“Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?”

In the old days of direct mail, a good response was 3%.  On a
particularly important project in the early 80s, we achieved 36%
inviting folks to travel internationally to the Paris Air Show with
regard to ruggedized computers.

Given the size of the installed base of CentOS, it should be "kleine
kartoffels" to prevent future delays based on hardware failures, but
let us not get pedantic.
