RHAS 2.1 (and ES, the difference being, AFAICT, support) are basically
just 7.2/7.3 systems (more the former, I think).  So, if it works with
7.2, it should work with RHAS.  3rd party RPMs should be just fine; I
have a few customers using up2date and they don't have any problems with
the RPMs I've installed.

My current strategy for my customers is to maintain them all at 7.3
until towards the end of the year, at which time I'm guessing RHAS 2.2
will be out, to which I will them move my customers.
