Lawrence, I can't speak for the devs but my understanding is that Mageia 
will keep everything that makes Mandriva unique and great, which IMHO 
means more than anything else urpmi and the draktools.

If Mageia starts to change these things then it will quickly alienate 
many users. Continuity is crucial to take over the Mandriva userbase.
