As long as it is right and people keep arguing with it, I guess.

Well it was what I want.  Now it's different.

A different disto with unique maintenance requirements is exactly what
I don't want.  But I don't see how to avoid having multiple systems
with different required procedures overlapping for some time now.

I don't blame anyone in CentOS-land for the breakage - I'm sure it
eats some of your time too.  But, is there anything that could help
automate a transition?   Are there tricks buried inside the automated
6x-7x upgrade tool that could be separated out to help build a
working-but-parallel 7x system to test before cutting over?   How are
others dealing with the end of freenx and the inability of x2go to run
gnome3?  That's 'almost' a uniquely CentOS issue because freenx was so
easy on CentOS5/6.
