Sure, at some point in 2010, we may reach a point where it would be ill
advised to build a new system using RHEL5/PG8.1. I was suggesting more
that there are completely reasonable reasons to deploy 8.1 even right
now in 2009, and people are doing so. That gives the release a lot more
future than 7.4 and 8.0, which anyone sensible gave up on a while ago.
I'm all for dropping those older ones, but I don't think getting more
aggressive than that and bundling 8.1 in while you're at it is so wise.
