It will also be impossible to add packages that depend on RPM Fusion  
or otherwise encumbered software. That may be the sticking point with  
supercollider and pd.

Speaking of Fedora Jam and Planet CCRMA, I believe the Fedora 20 beta  
is coming out next Tuesday and my plan is to upgrade my laptop from  
Fedora 19 then. So I will be testing out Fedora 20 / Fedora Jam /  
Planet CCRMA. I have another laptop that's been running Fedora 20  
since it went to alpha but the hardware is flaky on it to a pretty  
annoying level. Its only saving grace is that the built-in speakers /  
sound card are a *lot* better than what's on my newer laptop.
