Are any of these really "distributions", or are they "a minimal set of
stuff overlaid on RedHat?" It makes sense to use a free and complete
conventional distro to build a cluster distro -- but now the free and
complete distro is splitting into the less-reliable and less-fixed
distro (consumer) and the not-exactly-up-to-date distro (enterprise),
which changes what we can do cheaply.
