As long as the SRPMs remain available.  If the respin involves packages
where we don't keep the RPMS/SRPMS for the life of the ISO respin then
we'd be in trouble.

I know this would cause trouble for things from FC-devel.  I think it
would be a problem for FC-updates and FE as well.

Also, if one aim is for third parties to be able to redistribute the
isos on CD, they might like to have the SRPMS packaged onto isos as well
(just in case someone asks them for it).
