Fedora historically relies on an "open source" model for this - there
are a lot of smart people working on Fedora, and we depend on each and
every one of them to realize the problems caused by seemingly isolated
changes. With that in mind, I'm wondering if you have any input as to
what problems there might be with the change in question.
You don't just replace years of UNIX (or Linux) history/heritage
overnight without bothering a chunk of the users.
This is something what we've historically been willing to do in Linux,
and so far we've had pretty good results.
