Actually, I think the point was if you want to create Dodo Linux 7 based
on Fedora Core 6 it's easier to substitute the Dodo Linux id if the
package/file providing it has a neutral name. No need to scan scripts and
deps for fedora references - just replace the release file in the package
with a new one.
