Each distro has to deal with distro-specific customizations.

(E.g. Apache does it. I understand that you can't really compare
Yate to Apache but that doesn't make my point invalid.)

Very true!
BTW I discovered a nice tool (http://www.review-board.org/) which
makes that job a bit easier. I'm thinking about using it myself.
