At the moment, not in CentOS-6. The problem I have now is that quite a 
lot of the buildsystem state and policy is static to the machines its 
running on and plague is just a wrapper around the real scripts. It 
would be trivial to use something like rabitmq and actually completely 
lose the plague setup around the buildsystem. something that is very 
much on the cards. Its just a case of working out who is going to do the 
stuff and how and what the scope of something like this might be.

However, the base common denominator is still mock and I dont see that 
changing in the near future. Also, while we still support and work with 
CentOS-3, its quite nice to see us support it. Is there anything in 
mock-0.9 that results in a build output that is different from the one 
that mock-0.6.x is able to produce ?
