Yes, I'm pretty sure I want to switch to EL 6. Way back when, I was fairly 
aggressive switching to EL 4, and have enjoyed a very long, stable period as a 
result. I don't really want to switch frequently, I'd rather "shake it all out 
in one fell swoop" and then not worry about it again for as long as possible. 

At this point, I'm likely to begin testing with SL 6, and then switch to 
CentOS (if it's available in time) prior to actual rollout in a few month's 

I recognize (and appreciate!) CentOS' dedication to quality before 
punctuality, even if it is inconvenient at times.
