...which due to the soname change in it, will break stuff and leave yum
users without all updates until they figure out what repo they need to
temporarily disable in case they're using ones that have dependent
packages.   -> ->   ->

This is the second consecutive update to directfb which will cause these
problems.  I've seen no mail about the change on lists that I follow.
The packages are built for all repos all the way down to FC-3 (an "EOL"d
release).  Looks like nothing was learned from the previous directfb
mess.  *sigh*

I'm inclined to move the FE-[345] packages at least temporarily away
from the needsign queue so that it can be discussed/explained why the
pain is necessary, and if it is, it can be properly announced and people
(both packagers and users) can prepare.  Objections?
