With EL6 there have been some really strange build roots as well, we 
might need to make a pragmatic call at some stage on how-to work with or 
without those. One of the most odd ones is
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=644778

where buildroots even for the same package were different on different 
architectures; in this case, it 'feels' like its because of the rolling 
builds where queues ran independently for different architectures. And 
there is no clean way of working around this, unless you don't mind 
cross builds waiting for a sync 'pulse' for each package.

Can be mitigated to some extent by running packages-as-tasks rather than 
builds-as-tasks; but then were now talking about spiritual issues 
subject to wildly divergent interpretation.
