Yeah, specfiles aren't all -- a lot of time there are patches and
additional sources involved. I like how jpackage.org does .nosrc.rpm, so
this can be similar. I have packaged lots of proprietary binary-only
stuff, a lot of time while bleeding bile from my eyes, so if I could
make this useful to others, I'm all for it.

I'll investigate creating .nosrc.rpm files.
