I'm not opposed to autospec supporting this. I think users and people
who build-their-own should be able to use it. Whether clearlinux starts
to use these features I doubt, but having it available to developers for
testing and playing around is already enough motivation for me.
I suspect the best way/place to drive this is on the github autospec
project issue/pr tracker, and attract eyes to it.
