I think so. I expect we'll find issues with isolinux, grub, livecd-tools, liveusb-creator. It could
be hilarious to see how many problems this causes. But I'll bet $3.50 that by week 4 QA people
start feeling like the cat in the box, and will be looking for a way to release the gas

Right. It's always a case of trying to find out where the bodies are buried for each release. This
like adding a whole separate cemetery of unknown size and depth. It could be one of those town of
1000 varieties, or it could end up like one in the French Quarter where "there's always room for
one more."

And is fixing this apostrophe issue going to have some clear benefit anywhere else? It's 2013, this
is the 19th release of Fedora, and this is the first time it's come up?
