Close, but not quite the RFE I've expressed for Koji, the buildsystem we'll 
use for the merged Core/Extras.

Instead of keeping the buildroot and reusing it, it would instead make the 
just built packages available for your next buildroot, yours alone.  This 
would allow you to chainbuild a list of intertwined packages using previous 
results in the buildroot but still using a fresh buildroot each time, and 
still landing all the builds in -candidate.  Most likely not possible in F7 
timeframe though.
