To build everything from source yourself and not to package other
parties binaries, is one of the foundations of an open source
distro, such as Fedora.
What your are trying to achieve is to abandon this and to allow
foreign binaries in Fedora.
There are at least two things to untangle from that statement.
First, "foreign binaries" are already allowed to run on Fedora. I
certainly don't think we should break that.
But that's not my interest *here*. Here, I am talking about how we
build and ship *Fedora-built* binaries. My goal is to expand that, not,
somehow, the opposite.
