Drupal provides addition?

IIRC, the suggestion that Toshio had wisely made, to resolve the core
package naming and module package naming issue, was that the drupal
package in Fedora (which is named 'drupal' and is version 6.x) include
a virtual Provides:

Provides:  drupal6 = %{version}-%{release}

Jon Ciesla, could you add this and roll it into a package update in
Fedora?  I'm sure any number of us could test it for you since it's
not even a functional change, getting it into stable quickly.

Then people who are packaging D6 modules could simply add this to
their spec files:

Requires: drupal6 >= 6.0

And the same spec files will work continuously throughout Fedora and
EPEL.  (Toshio can correct me if I got his suggestion wrong, in which
case I apologize yet again for being dense about this.)
