Sounds good, but doesn't help me get the new rpm in right now. I'm 
starting to consider going dirty and just adding fake library provides 
for one build of rpm to get deltarpm "bootstrapped", as I assume 
createrepo (and thus deltarpm) doesn't actually get invoked in the srpm 
creation phase, right?
