Agreed - it's an understood tradeoff - we get freshest code, and in
turn we have to either fall out of support or spend a huge effort in
the rebase.

However, it's not the only way.

With some hints and help from the Fedora/RH crowd the path from Fedora
to RHEL may become a viable path. People in the Fedora community are
asking for this and if you read between the (flaming) lines, there is
some sense to the request.

Of course, there are also technical issues in carving that path. You
can see the "interesting" issues that Ubuntu LTS support sometimes
hits. I can't say it's an easy road either.
