My experience with IPA over the last year is, I wouldn't use this in a 
production environment without full vendor support.

So I have to say RHEL6.4 64bit, yes it will cost but frankly its minor compared 
to lost downtime and credibility.

Hi Peter and Dimitri,

Thanks for your responses.  I think I am going to bite the bullet and put F18 
into production.  One of the elements that made that easier was recognizing 
that RHEL 7 was going to be based on Fedora of some sort, and a stripped-down 
Fedora with SELinux will be plenty secure while I wait for that convergence.

It seems that Fedora 18 will be the template for RedHat 7 so it's almost like 
getting it early.

Cheers!  Brian
