I'm to blame for the fedorakmod aimed at Fedora style modules.  Right
now I've got a lot on the plate that keeps me from spending more time
working on this.  However, with a new job in progress and RHEL 5 looking
like it will be Yum based I'll probably be able to get some work done.

Of course, patches and discussion welcome.  :-)
