Because the config format changed in Fedora and all of 3 people emailed

Mock in EPEL5 is 0.7.2. I have an *experimental* 0.7.7 patchset that
has been verified to *not* fix the problem. The change from 0.7.2 to
0.7.7+patch to fix this is, in itself, a pretty large jump with several
new features.

I'd rather not have to support the old branch, as it *truly* is a pain
in the neck to maintain due to the mock-helper/mock.py split.
