For now :-) Is there anything you are missing with the existing ones in

Yep, I would never try to include an upgrade to anything as basic as gtk
in Planet CCRMA (a lot depends on it). So, yes, I guess if you need that
you will have to upgrade to fc3.

It is :-) It is possible to do it but I have not tried. You may want to
google for successfull experiences from others. I would try a phased
approach, meaning don't upgrade everythin at once. But I don't know how
I would go about it till I try.
