Were it up to me, I'd post the RPMs for RHEL with a prominent 
disclaimer on the support issue.   (But then I'd probably want to 
separate builds for RHEL3/RHEL4...)   Many people aren't aware of the 
improved ability to build RHEL packages from the tarball, and they 
only see the complete lack of RHEL binary packages as non-support for RHEL.

And I think a CentOS "branch" symlinked to the RHEL branch, or 
vice-versa, would be a nice recognition of that program...
