This is going to be one of the largest challenges.  From Redhat's
point of view, Fedora is an innovative upstream.  when we land on a
specific Fedora versions we will have to make the commitment to
support it for a specific period of time.

On the bright side Sugar on Fedora on the XO is self limiting to a
very small set of hardware and a reasonably small set of packages.

Expensive but not prohibitive.
