My comment was going to be that the "solution" is the kernel + OpenIPMI user space pieces, which are currently at a 0.4.3 release, and do not appear ready for mainline.  So, the full solution may need work to be production.  However, if an IPMI solution is in RH and MVCGE, then maybe it is correct that we should remove this from the top 10.  I guess it depends on if RH and MVCGE have the full solution.

Also, I'm collecting all comments to make a new top 10 (or top 5 or whatever it ends up being) list to publish near the end of the day (or whenever it looks like we've converged on a new list).
