But just the specfile, not the actual bits, right? And the specfile already
has some specfile modifications:

* Fri Oct 06 2006 Johnny Hughes <johnny at centos.org> [2.6.9-42.0.3]

- added i586 support for CentOS
- changed the key to CentOS and not redhat

I'm not sure if this or the yum hack is better, but I tend towards doing it
in the kernel.

Perhaps Red Hat could be persuaded to do so in the next "u" update, as well.
