I intend to address this need in autobuild itself, but adding a concept
of generic control file templates. So you'll just declare what 'features'
your app's build system has, and autobiuld will 'do the right thing'. So
as an example you'll say
   features = autotools, rpm

And it'll generate a control file to do standard autotools based build
and test, and also invoke an RPM build cycle.
