Well, since I have, I'll probably take Hans's suggestion, since it allows
me to build for devel, then current, then current-1, etc, the Way God
Intended(tm).  :)

For future reference, if I wanted to do this the disttagless way in the
future, how does inheritance "work"?  Let's say I build for F-7 and it has
no disttag.  What do I do to get it into F-8?  This still doesn't solve
the FC-6 problem, either, though I imagine that goes away when FC-6 moves
to Koji.

Thanks all!
