You could submit a patch to do this then and get any other relevant 
packages reviewed, included and then request Fedora Infrastructure team 
to run new create repo for the Fedora devel as soon as we move beyond 
Fedora 7. I don't think letting the package connect to a different repo 
by default is desirable. That doesn't scale.
