Ok, so maybe it's time to setup Fedora "backports" repo for these that
wants new and shiny Firefox 4, PostgreSQL 9 or whatever with big

I'm not a huge fan of huge updates in "stable" Firefox3->Firefox4,
Kde4.5->Kde4.6 etc. In fact I would prefer to avoid them. But
sometimes people want this latest and greatest, shiny :)

Setting up "official" backport repo will avoid repos fragmentation.
Keeping all cool updates in one place appears to be a reasonable idea.
Am I right?
