I said "major" Linux distros! :)

Seriously, though, while in general I am indifferent to the change
itself as I will be able to enable CAB for myself, I am of the opinion
that the change needs to be highlighted. Fedora should make it obvious
as well. This is the type of feature that people rely on when they
need it the most, and they need to know that it has been disabled
_before_ they need it.
