It might make sense, yes.
I would have loved to know about Novell's version before I rewrote
the entire patch that was sitting in bugzilla for quite some time to
make it sane. This was a significant work. I learnt about Novell's
version too late and I wouldn't say it was a nice surprise for me.
May I request that such changes made for a distribution are at least
made known to upstream?
(and this is not just about Novell, really)
