Even mirrors of the rpms could be useful. My current process involves grabbing
rpms that aren't in the latest rawhide and creating repo information on
my end. I am experimenting with a hack for multilib that doesn't pull
in the same mix as mash does. Currently I am using 'provides' information.
If I really want everything that is i386 specific I need to look at the
files, but that would be slower and I haven't actually needed the missing
stuff yet.

This sounds like a good idea if you get the people time and mirrors are
OK with carrying it.

It also hurt that this time around the beta freeze was especially long.
