Well, we need to put some thoughts into this -- if we for example start
building packages that require the newer libvirt today then users of
CentOS 5.0 (5.1 is not released yet) and those still on RHEL 5.0.x would
run into dependency issues when using EPEL. We should try hard to avoid
that. That's why I suggested to keep "5.0" directories around for some
weeks months -- but the idea was not that welcomed afaics...
