Makes sense to me. Another thing that occurred to me while packaging is, is there a way to do multilines inside a splitoff? While making the kdelibs package, I have a huuuuuge line of files in the "Files:" section of the bin and shlibs sub-packages. Can those be continued with \ at the end, or maybe a sub heredoc?
