I don't see why we should add cruft to our release tags to help people 
shoot their own feet either. I'm not going to start flamewar over this - 
there are worse things in life that RPMforge disttags :) but I simply 
don't see no value added whatsoever by trying to create an upgrade path 
for *extras* when one doesn't exist for the actual products.
