Unfortunately it may be necessary for you folks, if we ever have to bump the 
package in an older release, without becoming NVR higher than the same 
package in a newer release.  If 3jpp is used in both FC6 and F7, and we have 
to rebuild in FC6 for whatever localized reason, we have to be able to do it 
in a way that doesn't promote it to be NVR higher than the 3jpp in F7.
