What minimum versions of RHEL, CentOS, and Fedora will this restrict 1.7 
to? It would be a very welcome change for ITW development but it sounds 
like it might also restrict any improvements that come with 1.7 to users 
of pretty recent distro releases. Some future backports might also 
become a little more involved but I don't think that would be too big of 
an issue.
