Just out of interest, what sort of complaints did you hope for? "brasero"
in devel is broken too for several days:

   brasero-0.5.1-1.fc7.i386  requires  libburn.so.2
   brasero-0.5.1-1.fc7.i386  requires  libisofs.so.2

   brasero - 0.5.1-1.fc7.i386    (7 days)
   brasero - 0.5.1-1.fc7.ppc    (7 days)
   brasero - 0.5.1-1.fc7.x86_64    (7 days)

Plus announce on fedora-maintainers list (or this list) that you want to
break the ABI in FC-6. Communication like that must improve in the future.
