My point is we could use a solid RH 5.2 foundation, and skim the cream
from RH 6.0

I still don't see what the hurry is. The urge to have the "latest and
greatest" is understandable, but the *.0 Redhat releases are notoriously
unreliable. My point is not that I don't want us to upgrade any packages.
It is that I have doubts about moving to glibc2.1. 

The fact that 6.0 has  a few newer packages isn't reason to shift: we can
rebuild them for 5.2.
