I agree here. The only problem I see in the future between the 2.4 and
2.6 releases is what the distros release. I think any new release would
have X4.3 in it. Now a solution could be drawn up by the distro, but
thats just one thing.

Again agreed. It never hurts to try. If failed, we can always revert to
the last solution.
