Im definetly interested in keeping in the loop here. yes it is outside
the scope fo koji, you could be asked to build the same nvr multiple
times in different buildroots, build the same nvr in the FTBFS case, I
really do not see it fitting in at all with koji's goals.
you may be able to kludge it into koji with external repos and scratch
builds but it is pretty kludgy.
