Well, how much interest is there in this? 
How many packages would we have? 

Can the interesting ones that people want really be made to not
conflict with the base RHEL versions? 

This would be a totally seperate 'epel-bleeding' or
'epel-newer-versions' repo?

Yeah, perhaps we should brainstorm a list of these and see how possible
it is to make versions that don't conflict. I suspect in some cases
it's going to be nearly impossible. ;(
