I think (not sure) you can have emacs-muse obsolete specific versions
ranges of muse, but I'm not positive.

Personally - I say do the emacs-muse thing now, as in yesterday, with
obsolete/provides for muse.

Then in FC-6/devel, drop the obsolete/provides.

FC-5 users will have muse replaced with emacs-muse and then when fc-6 is
released, they will get an emacs-muse that does not obsolete muse - and
can install this other package.

People trying to yum update from FC-4 to FC-6 really should make a pit
stop in FC-5 first anyhow.
