Others and I tried to in March/April. fedora.us' archives is full of
that and the reaction.

No, it's not. I hope you will understand the issue and see that
Fernando delivered a magnificent solution compatible with rpm version
to Before Christ. Even one that I highly recommend for fedora.us.

Look closer, you are using my arguments from half a year ago that made
this part of fedora.us' specs. There are cases where this is
neccessary and these cases are reflected in the repo. This idiom is
also only then strictly neccessary when dealing with a closed vendor
(i.e. one that doesn't care about the outside world). That is said to
not be the case anymore.
