That's possible.  It won't reduce the amount of work, because all 3
upstreams will be releasing headers at different times, so we'll just
be rebuilding the same package 3 times as often.

There are other reasons _not_ to want to combine different upstreams
into a single source RPM -- primarily, you cannot have consistent
version numbers.

live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
