Awesome, I'll start the brainstorming...

Yes, once I get a little more feedback about how it is working for folks
using it, good or bad. hint hint :)
Rex: I've been using kde-unstable on my SL i686 laptop pretty much
since you made it available. I can't say I've explored its features,
and the laptop isn't in continuous use; but I've found it much more
stable and user friendly than what I had before, which was, as far as I
was aware, the standard distribution. Thanks a lot.
I've mentioned my use of kde-unstable, and kernel-lt from elrepo, in
several posts on the ATrpms-users, rpmfusion, MythTV and SL lists. I
guess it would be good to lose the 'unstable' tag. Most el6-clone users
are hoping for stability :-)
Maybe I can mention, in passing, that the mouse on my F17 box has
developed twitchy and unpredictable behaviour over the last few weeks;
window switching and text selection often need several attempts before
they come right. I expect I'll be moving on to F18 soon, though, so
it's not going to get much attention.
But yes, I like your 'unstable' el6 packages.
