From my understanding, each of the source rpms could be used to achieve
the same build result. (Or isn't that the case?)

Unfortunately source rpms do not have to be same for all architectures
(for example if you have Patch hidden by some %ifs). Not sure if it
case for some existing package though.

Also different rpms from different distributions might compress source
rpm in a different way.

Bummer.

Would nosrc RPMs be an alternative? Or referring to the buildservice
source server right away (much more convenient, although the interface
is lacking yet)?
