Perhaps I have missed something?  How does packaging as an RPM help
upgrades unless they are coming packaged as an RPM also?  In other words
if yum etc can update it then that's great but you'll not get on
yum (or which is what you really need if its an upgrade!) so
when [if] is released you'd still need to create your own RPM,
in which case why not just compile it??

I welcome your explanation - its probably that I still don't understand
RPMs etc like I should..
