The simple-minded bass-player in me has just one practical question: what

probably mean the new rpm will miss F10 alpha. Whether that's a good thing
or not might depend on if you're in rel-eng or not ;)

If we can dedicate a couple helpers to you, I bet we could get a feature
page written up quickly, and I bet we could get FESCo approval in good
faith on getting a suitable feature page up, after the package is built.

Well then, here you go: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/RPM4.6
The new rpm isn't committed or built yet, I'm going to wait for approval so nobody gets to complain we didn't go by the book.

In the meanwhile, you can find the SRPMS for the new rpm and couple of more critical packages patched to build + work with it here:
http://laiskiainen.org/rpm/srpms/

The rpm package is huge because it has db-4.5.20 tarball in it. This isn't the way it's going to be built for Fedora, it's just a temporary measure to make testing easier.
