make it 5 or 10, please. one might want to supersede base packages with 
ones from private/local repos. hplip for instance was such a candidate 
for a long time, my printers were not supported by the stock version of 
hplip from EL5 and I had to compile a newer one from fedora. and at the 
time I was not yet relying on include/excludepkgs
