You have a point, but for something like anaconda you really need it to be
installable and tested via installs.  Simply branching the package isn't
enough, since you need actual composes with the branched code in it.

Not impossible to do, but when we have trouble getting people to test rawhide
already I'm not sure diluting our test pool that way is a great answer.
