Inherit a package from FC6 into F7 (and later) w/o having to rebuild
it, e.g. no waste of dist/mirror space for large data-only packages. I
know it has been done before for a couple of packages (texmf trees for
example?). Anything that is a firmware or pure data
(e.g. dist-agnostic) is a candidate for this, but currently being a
manual procedure it is only worth while for bulkier bits.
