for one it is a simple suggestion, I didn't want to have cvs pre-alpha
builds with kernel modules discussed, but give the general idea.

Of course, just as version cut-off moved to the disttags, you can have
hierarchical buildtags, like <vendor>_<3rd party> build structures,
leading to things like foo-1.2.3-4_5.rh9.ralf.src.rpm or
foo-1.2.3-0_5.rh9.ralf.src.rpm, if the vendor does not yet offer foo
in version 1.2.3.

For packages not existing in FC and where it looks like it will take
some time to get them in (or perhaps will by definition not ever make
it), I suggest to not use hierarchical tags, as it is easier to ask
the "man-inside" to use a higher build.
