Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 day
Range: 12,800 kilometers
Targets: up to eight D&D players
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

You ensnare the targets in a vast machine of red tape, legalese and procedures. The target feels compelled to pay you 1d10 x 1000 gp per caster level. If the target succeeds at his will save, he navigates the red tape and is not affected. The target is then free to return to his mother's basement.

Material Components: a large amount of money and a Legal team

Well, RHEL also mantains a stable kABI within the entire major release, and only rebases packages when absolutely necessary (maintaining most library ABIs as well). For example, RHEL 4 ships apache 2.0.52, and has since launch. Security and bug fixes are backported, but the fundamental behavior remains the same for any instance of RHEL 4. This is also true of libraries.

This means that a given piece of 3rd-party software is more likely to keep working after an update in RHEL than in Fedora.
