I'd prefer to not go down the "sub-repository" route, as I assume that 
is really hard, painful and time-consuming to properly maintain over 
time due to inter repo problems (which could create trouble for our 
users, which then will be disappointed by EPEL in general). Especially 
if you want to keep those sub-repos supported for the whole lifetime of 
the EL release they were designed for.

I'd much prefer to ship the newer libs or those 'core' apps in question 
in parallel to the packages from EL. That was discussed for speex (a 
newer one than the one in EL5 is needed by recent asterisk versions 
iirc) and might solve the problems.
