At the moment, I'm not sure it's necessary. Building with rpm still
works (with some limitations).
There may be a number of places we can use makelsbpkg to good effect.
I'd be in favor of doing it on a per-project basis as a low-priority
task; the idea being "we won't reject patches to switch to makelsbpkg as
long as building that way doesn't introduce regressions".
