Probably should target getting only a single SCL into F21 (change "at least
one" into "one") and also say that the process of getting it in will be an
exception to the normal rules in terms of deadlines.  The guideline draft
says that SCLs normally have to be submitted to FESCo by the Change
Ddeadline.  ie the same deadline as for this Change Proposal.  And the
guidelines and the scl-utils package are definitely not ready enough to
allow that by that deadline.

User experience should probably be changed to be less... "dapper".  Except
in specific cases the user experience won't simply be to install the scl
packages and the old applications they have will work.  There's likely to be
a bit of work to either download extra libraries from third party sites and
configure them to use the stack that's inside of the scl or to build their
own rpm packages that add onto the scl.  So the user experience section
should be a little more realistic.

Should probably have a basic contingency plan as there are pieces that will
affect building of other packages.  the releng pieces could require changes
to fedpkg or koji, for instance.

Might need to make this a system wide change for similar reasons.
