Bloom, the ROS generator system has recently gotten support to generate

As you'll see from the ticket, I've already pointed him to SCLs, but
considering that he's already using /opt/ros/$ros-release, and not the
system directories, I'm wondering how using SCLs would be any different?

wasn't too sure what the best list for this question is.

No problem in using regular packaging for /opt. Many people already do so.
SCLs are better if you have two packages of different version on one
system, because installation in different directory don't solve rpm
