Sorry, I was once again victim of GMail's interface and answered only
to Sebastian instead of to the list.

One thing to keep in mind: it would have to be actually accepted
*upstream* before it can go in Fedora.

Also, Rawhide is now frozen for F12Alpha, so even if that's accepted
upstream, if you want this change in Fedora 12, you'll have to ask a
freeze break to Rel-Eng. [1]

Better do it quick :)
