aggregates are indeed only recommended for very extreme cases. And you need
know exactly the disadvantages of it.

In best case just build against the other repository, so build against
devel:tools:compiler/$repo instead of copying the binaries. It does not
waste disk space, does not require re-signing and will not break when the
other packager decides to play with dependencies.

use a branch, when you need build it in a different way (eg. for another
distribution or with some source change).

Well, none of that was in the wiki last time I checked, especially the
bits about how not to waste disk space or re-signing.

Then it would be great if one add the explanation Adrian has given to
the wiki article.
