I'm just kind of curious ... as both the RDO and SUSE folks look closer
at this, how big are the differences?  I could see one possible outcome
where the differences are significant enough that it would be less work
overall to just continue to treat them separately.  If instead it seems
the differences are minor enough that combining efforts is a win for
everyone, then that's even better, but I don't see it as the required
outcome here personally.
