Yes, you may. Good pint. Guys on dev? Can we please get this patch
integrated for the next release? It's trivial, it provides a clear benefit,
it only affects RPM bundling, and it's very useful for people with 64-bit
hardware, increasingly common for server class setups (such as the one I
just did for a client, which is why I wrote the patch).
