Oops. I missed this thread and started a very similar one, since
reviewers are complaining about the same BuildRoot problem in my
packages than in Axel's.

- I'd like non-broken BuildRoots to be considered OK (this should
already be the case with "preferred" in the guidelines), and by
non-broken I mean something like "starts with %{_tmppath}/ and contains
at least a directory name unique to the package being built". Maybe the
guidelines could be updated to include something like that.

- I'd like the FUD about appending `id -u` solving the problem for
multi-user builds on the same system stop. Ralf, please : Users of a
same system will also have conflicts with %_builddir, %_rpmdir and
%_srcrpmdir by default and are *REQUIRED* to at least change their
%_topdir to get things working. Well, just have them also change their
%_tmppath as it can only be a positive thing.
