 This would mean that drpms on rawhide will still suck upto F12, but I
could live with that :).
 I assume we don't do F11 => F12 drpms?

 On the other side of it, does anyone have any stats. on how much was
saved by using Xz instead of bzip2? -- Ie. what we'd lose if we did a
mass rebuild.

Here's one I came across:
