That's a good point, too. My mail is trying to make sure we consider 
developers who don't work on Fedora, but just use Fedora for development.
Paul makes a very reasonable point that we should be clear to accomodate 
(and not alienate) ourselves (Fedora contributors) as well.

So, as a throw-away example..., It might not make sense to have fedpkg in
the default install, but having an easily obtainable Fedora SDK of sorts
that includes all the bits needed to get up and going might be a good idea.
