We have to do it in a way that makes the exploaded tree useful for managing 
your CHANGES to that exploaded tree.  We don't let the sourcerpm passed into 
the buildsystem be of a modified tarball, we continue to force it to be the 
unmodified upstream tarball plus the patches that you've been managing with 
the exploaded tree applied to it.  This continues to enforce the patches are 
valid to a known release, allows you to use exploaded tree to manage the 
patches, gives upstream a place to cherry pick changes from, or old style 
patch files to deal with.
