And I guess a more general thought - does such a fork basically kill 
Mandriva as a distro?   And maybe they don't pick up the slack?  Because 
if I have to move all my computers and servers off of mandriva to 
something else and it's NOT a seamless upgrade, then I'm going to 
evaluate all the distros for the best way to go - they may not get any 
or all of Mandriva's slack.
