That will only affect new installs right? I want to make sure that I
force it on everyone hence why I was thinking of obsoleting, but perhaps
I should just put it in as a require somewhere (e.g. to systemd) such
that everyone gets it but can still technically use mkinitrd should they
have a real need (i.e. dracut is really broken!)
