  I thought that was the support nightmare we were trying to dig
ourselves out of.  I do not believe that users expect distributions to
modify source code for their release, only configurations.  Furthermore,
every non-standard change made by a distribution is another barrier to
entry for developers using that distribution, in my opinion.

  I could be wrong in these assumptions, I haven't run any surveys.
