I really would rather keep the separation but I also have a distaste of
trying to force other projects to change because I made a random change
that affects them.

Gcc does that from time to time.  Their reasons are always technically
sound but that doesn't stop me from grumbling.

In this case, I think that I, or someone, would have to make sure that
sources.redhat.com stuff compiles correctly before I move gcc to a
"non-testing" status.
