So the magic that would have to go into "osc up"

currently looked at corresponds to a spec file in the _link'ed OBS
package, do an unexpanded checkout else do expanded".

Because the issue becomes more and more complicated, it seems
the root cause should be solved instead of trying to make an
oversophosticated workaround via link packages.

I would prefer if the openSUSE build service software "just works"
with source packages that contain multiple spec files.

Preferably even spec files with arbitrary names that create binary
packages with arbitrary names. Non matching arbitrary names are
of course not a good idea in general (cause any kind of confusion)
but the openSUSE build service software should not have issues with it.

Otherwise every new contributor who creates a source package
with multiple spec files gets all those issues again and again.

This is planned as an option for the future.

However, we will not be enable it for current distros, because it changes
the result of their sources.
