I don't believe we should have a class system in the OS's that we choose 
to support. If we're going to bring in a new OS I think we should first 
bring it in using non-voting jobs however once all of the bits have been 
finalized the supported OS should be able to pass the same sets of tests 
as everything else. Now, we may run into various applications that may 
not be compatible or available on different distros, which is fine, but 
in that case we should call out the deficiencies marking a specific job 
as non-voting until we can see about resolving the issues. I would like 
to avoid creating second class operating systems within OSA if at all

We don't want to carry the extra code if we don't also pick up extra contributors to maintain the code.
