[RFE] Possibility to download rawhide packages using up2date.

Description of Problem:
It would be very nice if it was possible to make up2date download packages from
rawhide. Many users, me included want to test the bleeding edge software from
time to time, but installing the rawhide RPM's by hand is a dependancie hell. It
would make life so much easier if you could just download the rawhide package
using up2date and it would solve the dependancies too.
It is already possible to do a similar thing with Debian. As you probably know,
Debian is avaible in "stable", "testing" and "unstable" forms. Apt-Get defaults
to get the package updates for the same system as you have installed, however,
if you have an install of "stable", you can make it get newer packages from
"testing" or "unstable" if you prefer the bleeding edge.
I think up2date should be the same way, ie. by default only download the errata
packages for the system you have installed, but it should also be possible to
make it download the very latest packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Update Agent v2.7.11
more or less a call to me made by the server folks, and or the os
Reassigning to RHN/backend.
Wow, old bug.
Rawhide is fedora now, and fedora provides yum repositories, so I'd
say this was fixed somehow.
