buildrequires is fine, as long as we build it it will end up in optional, no distill config needed. We just made it a "supported package".
So long as this is pulled in as a BR at package level,then yes I would agree it would NOT need to go in the Distill/Pungi configs. Are you saying it would go to optional if we did nothing? If yes, I'll gladly revert the above commit.
