Perhaps, but some rather large customers of AS2.1, would like it if
redhat could deliver the large outstanding automounting features for
their (mainly sun) environments. Since these environments resist
change, upgrading a kernel to include a newer autofs4 is more likely
than upgrading the whole system.
