I think think your proposal is the way we should be doing things. I think
we should get a lot more testers of the upcoming release with a model
like this.

It would be nice to have a yum plugin were you install a specified package (or
packages) from rawhide and only pull in the absolute minimum number of packages
to satisfy dependencies from rawhide. As much as is allowed, dependencies
should be pulled from the base repo. If I update one package from rawhide,
I don't want to update all of it's dependencies to rawhide, only those that
absoultely have to be (based on minumum versions in requires).
