We certainly get a lot of bug reports about them, so I think we should
support them as well as is possible.
Historically redhat has had a bunch of these from customers where each
user have multiple machines with different versions of the distro
installed, but using a shared homedir. They need to use multiple
machines because they work on multiple projects at the same time, and
each project has standardized on a specific set of software releases.
