Luckily, all the dependencies mentioned in the 0.88 Roadmap were already
available in F-11, but I've found a few more which weren't documented:

 python-decorator (in F11, but not in F11-XO1)
 python-dateutil  (in F11, but not in F11-XO1)
 python-xklavier  (not in F11, needs backporting)

I'll build a public yum repo with the sugar packages and missing
dependencies as soon as I find some time.

Meanwhile, I've convinced rpm into installing the rawhide packages on
Fedora 11. In this configuration the Metacity window manager crashes on
startup for reasons yet to be determined.

After restarting Metacity from the console, Sugar 0.88 showed up and
appeared to work normally.
