What if include rpm-build in yum, like apt-build, or apt-get build
does? Maybe yum could become another emerge or pkg_add or so. :p
1. why wouldn't we make a yum-devel that handles that sort of thing so
we don't have one command with 25 thousand options?
2. We wouldn't want all that building going on as root so it'd be better
if that command could do it as a user.
