Once it gets to the point where our "spec" file is so out of sync
with anybody's RPM based distribution in the real world, I suspect
that removing and not shipping it in tree might be more helpful to
the users.  Or at least have a set of pointers, one for each major
RPM based distribution, where to obtain spec file more tailored for
their platform, at the beginning of it, or something.

Have we already reached that point?  Does anybody still use it?
