Same here. Very early at ATrpms I had the disttag internal to the
buildsystem, but this is a very bad choice. It need to be passed from
the outside.

Nothing against a patch to rpm that makes it easier to manage the
disttag, e.g. different distag for src.rpm that for binary rpm
(i.e. no disttag for src.rpm).
