Off the top of my head..

- It's easier for more people to contribute

- It should eliminate the problem of conflicts between Core/Extras and

- It should eliminate the lag between an FC release and package

- It should be easier to support non-x86 hosts (PPC, for instance)

The downside is that each package has to go through a relatively lengthy
review process before it can get included.  However, in my limited
experience, packages are usually better off for having gone through this
review.  For instance, see what I'm going through with ardour...
