Putting cross compilers into Fedora

Would it be worth our while putting into Fedora basic gcc and binutils rpms
for cross compilers for all the Linux arches?  I keep finding the need to
compile kernels for arches other than the x86_64 boxes I normally use, and I
keep borrowing prebuilt compilers off others (usually Al Viro - thanks Al!) to
do this.

However, as the kernel advances, older compilers cease being able to compile
it, so I have to go finding new compilers again.

It would be much easier if I could just yum install them.

Any thoughts on whether it would be worthwhile?
