Chances are good :-) In the next couple of days I hope to start working
on fc6. First stop is the kernel[*], of course, and fc6 is based on
2.6.18... Most probably I'll try to "backport" to fc5 at least.

[*] I did try briefly the fc6 kernel and jack/qjackctl from Extras and
I'm getting small xruns from time to time on an otherwise idle machine.
