It's not that we don't consider it a bug, it's that we don't feel that this 
bug can be "fixed" in rpm any time soon.  There are far bigger issues that 
our RPM team are trying to tackle.  So until such time that it is fixed in 
rpm, we still have to manage it correctly within our specs.  Same with 
buildroot, etc...
