Yes, that's pretty accurate.   Although there is no official RH mtpfs
package.  The source rpm was from sourceforge.  So perhaps a feature
request like

RHEL6 cannot current mount the popular Samsung Galaxy SIII.  Fedora is
using simple-mtpf (and perhaps a link to 841260, and even 820583 with a
mention that 841260 shows that mtpfs has been abandoned by Fedora).

It's against Fedora.

Note that I was one of the ones who commented on that one, with the simple-mtpfs solution.  That is
also against Fedora 17, so not applicable.
