Yes, you're right!
Michael has improved the build service with the "Aggregate"
functionallity for this.
Currently I don't know if osc supports this feature.

But you just need a placeholder package and in there a file named
"_aggregate". For example:
<aggregate project="SL-10.0-OSS">

I' add a complete example to the documentation as soon as possible.

Hint: An "osc checkout home:mlschroe" seems always a good idea. ;-)
