    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.
