+1 from me.
I think the only technical issues stopping us are:
	- layout to choose
	- a method of getting the version number in the spec file.
	 (which would need to be part of the buildconf process I think)

the second is important because doing this we could simply allow us to 
do something like:
	rpmbuild --sign -ta <disttarfile>

I'm not sure if it makes a difference on which distribution it was 
actually built on.. maybe the mandrake/redhat/suse guys have some
