OK, I'm going to give thoughts to my own thoughts.
I know lots of people that put Fedora on Mac's. So changing the
default of pungi would affect them, and that wouldn't be very nice.
But it's my opinion that you need to have a "Requires" for everything
that is needed by default. So I am suggesting using Connie's patch,
and then have the following in the spec file.
pungi is noarch so that is not a viable option at all.
