And, in case it wasn't apparent, this proposed packaging of extra RPMs only applies only to f18 and f19/rawhide. (And eventually in my fedorapeople.org repo for f16, f17, el5, and el6.)

If we're lucky, maybe we'd be able to drop the extra RPMs by the time f18 ships, and very probably, if not definitely, by the time f19 ships.
