koan should require python-ethtool

Description of problem:
# koan --replace-self
- looking for Cobbler at http://cobbler.cora.nwra.com:80/cobbler_api
the rhpl or ethtool module is required to use this feature (is your OS>=EL3?)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is not required because it's an either/or situation:
ethtool = rhpl.ethtool
raise InfoException("the rhpl or ethtool module is required to use this feature (is your OS>=EL3?)")
Adding a requirement on one would exclude the other, so neither are required and the import error is handled gracefully with a suggestion to install the one available for your distro.
I disagree. I filed this bug against *Fedora*, not cobbler in general. In Fedora, there is no rhpl.ethtool, only python-ethtool, and it should be required by the Fedora koan package.
