Ugh this is hard to say without flaming: let's not forget what
multi-repo-, dependency- and confusion-hell you create for other distros
by doing this OpenSUSE build "service"... I'm sure you are aware of such
problems when using 3rd repos. Ideally distros just package stuff up
themselves and make sure things are integrated into what exotic distro
quirks they have. But it's a difficult balance. Difficult problem. And,
hey, maybe the OpenSUSE build service already have taken this into
account; do you know?

Sorry again, if this comes across as a flame.
