It should be very simple to write a tool that just modifies the internal data 
in the rpm to change the dist tag and rename the file. If you wanted to get 
fancy, it could even update cvs for the specfile and update the changelog 
section of the rpm as well. It may not be necessary to recompile everything 
if that is objectionable.

My personal opinion is that we should rebuild every package at least once 
during every development cycle not only so that the tags are correct, but to 
make sure packages don't bit-rot as the tool chain improves. I'd rather have 
the churn and correctness than less to download and bit-rot.
