I agree. The whole point of the playbook is to run other programs.

I don't know what the turn-git-to-srpm-omatic would do - Slavek said
Radek was very interested in that ability. When Slavek and I talked
about it at summit I said - I don't know what particular tool would be
used to do that conversion but if the url that we git from the user for
a package is NOT a srpm then we should just pass it off to this program
and move merrily along.
