This is great news!

As far as getting this in for real, we have a Features page (which could
probably use some updating):

   https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Features/ReworkBuildinstall

And a Review Ticket:

   https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=661272

If you do a lot of package reviews, feel free to take it.  Someone needs
to.  Once the package is in Fedora, then we can nuke stuff in scripts/.
