I talked to Phil about this just the other day.  And, btw, I don't
think either of us thought of this particular failure mode.

It turns out that we need to unpack the SRPM during the import
process, to give you the ability to select what files are actually

We've talked about a few different ways to change SRPM importing to
make this step unnecessary.  One idea is to just always import
everything.  Another idea is to migrate the RPM plugin toward making
it easier to do more RPM-editing steps, so for instance instead of
choosing what files to import, you would choose what patches to apply.

No real decision has been made yet.  The RPM plugin is still in its
early days.  Input is definitely welcome.
