I have to decide what to build that package against ... it was built
against the PLUS repo (as most users who enable the Plus repo enable it

You can easily build it against the base repo and use it ... or I can
provide RPMS that are built against the base repo too.  If I make these
new rpms ... one will be called <name>.base   ....   the other
<name>.plus.  You would have to "exclude=" the <name>.plus one to get
the <name>.base one.  Would that be better?
