That is surely one way to fix it. My gripe with this is that perfectly fine RPMs
that installed with, say, eds-1.4.1 won't install with eds-1.4.1 due to the
changed version of some internal library in eds. I wouldn't mind to just rebuild
the RPMs if the library in question had API changes, but API changes in a stable
eds release serie should'nt happen, right?

Anyway, I won't mind one bit to re-enable Autoreq if that is the right thing to do.
