For me I was able to simply provide an update python, some additional tools and
it worked. (Note, I haven't tried it in the last 2 months though, so something
may have broken since then.)
I have noticed of late, pseudo's definition of clone conflicts with my
RHEL 4's definition of clone. Aside
from that I haven't noticed any significant issues.
semantics of clone changed between RHEL 4 and RHEL 5. :(

The newer version of pseudo (upstream, not yet in Poky) fixes this issue.

It's still in development, so I wouldn't consider it stable yet -- but the
reworking of the utility directories is what was needed to identify the differences.
