apart from the fact that 1.1.3 had so many bugs and doesnt work with
Vista - and 1.1.5 had a remote attack/DoS method.  i know RH have a
really nasty habit of backporting later bits back to previous versions
(aaargh!) however, there is no valid reason even in this 'enterprise
view' for the latest 1.1.x stable release which is config file etc
compatible to not be the standard release in the distro. they certainly
dont hold back that much with eg apache or BIND releases. 
so, why isnt 1.1.7 the chosen version for these distros. time? effort?
