spec files aren't portable across distributions in any meaningful sense, 
so if we checked it in it'd be specific to some distribution. But nobody 
from a distribution wants to maintain their spec file upstream, they all 
have a standard repo for their own spec files. So if we had one in dbus 
cvs it would just be unmaintained, even if we could figure out what 
distribution it was for.
