Perhaps I didn't present it well.  You can create a branch in git and
build it for rawhide, and it will go into rawhide.  What won't happen is
the changes in  your branch winding up in the f15/master branch.
Therefor your stuff can be in rawhide, and when we branch you can do a
quick build of the old content from f15/master.
