Well, it's not so clear as all that, but, sure. And I wasn't really
suggesting that RPM become or include the integration framework, just that
having the tests bundled into the RPM might be handy.

Putting it in the same repo makes sense to me, because then you don't have
to worry about keeping tags in sync across the repos or otherwise introduce
a new versioning scheme. But I suppose we could have fedpkg handle all that.
