Nice. One problem I'd note - you're using .treeinfo (yay) to get the
"version" string, except .treeinfo and fedora-release don't usually
agree on the version. 

For example: in F9Beta we have fedora-release-8.92, but .treeinfo
version is "9-Beta". 

Maybe we want to force them to be the same with some patching in
buildinstall? Or add a "releasever" .treeinfo variable that definitely
matches what yum will consider $releasever?
