Thinking about it, I always rebuild rpms in a clean environment (mach
for the older stuff - Centos 4.x, mock for newer) which means my repo
contains not just the rpms I put on a production box, but also the ones
I need to make those build, test etc. A production server currently has
235 perl rpms on it.

As I understand it the cpanrpm effort is aiming to build on similar work
done for debs. I only have one debian box though (not at work) and that
uses CPAN instead.
