I don't think that is the case. SuperCollider is fine, just waiting for 
some newer boost libraries to make it to Fedora (maybe Fedora 20?). 
Pd-extended does have a few dependencies that need RPM Fusion but it can 
be compiled without them (and then we'll see what we do when that time 
comes - probably another package needs to be pushed to RPM Fusion).

But yes, RPM Fusion dependencies can be problematic.

Hmmm, nope. Unless someone is secretly building Planet CCRMA packages 
for Fedora 20 :-) I'm not (yet). I usually wait till the official 
release is out.
