I think this is good, There are tons of places to get 3rd party RPMs out 
there.  ATrpms, dribble, freshRPMS, jpackage, Livna, RPMForge, 
PlanetCCRMA all come up in a google search.  We certainly aren't asking 
any of them to mention which repos they are incompatible with and I 
highly doubt all of them are completely compatible with eachother*. 


*I have not tried putting all of those repos together on one machine to 
see that they are all compatible.... I know better :)
