Not if unexec has a history of working solidly. Experience with the
portable dumper is much shorter and includes recent bugs. Not to
mention that the main pdump developers (Olivier and Martin) are
currently busy with work and play respectively.
I see no reason for people who build their own frequently not to use
the pdumper; risks are low. But for people who use a binary package
and hope to leave it in place for a year or so, I don't think it's
worth suing pdump just to satisfy "political correctness."
Thank you, then I'll stay with using the regular dumper for the SuSE
packages for now.
