OK, it's in. Let me know how it performs.

I did the following:
dl.atrpms.net/fc5-i386/redhat/release = FC5 test <N>
dl.atrpms.net/fc5-i386/redhat/updates = rawhide
So you can just pretend FC5 has been released and use the repos like
the other FC releases. In theory you would be able to continuously
upgrade up to FC5. But there are cases where packages get removed
altogether or get downgraded w/o any epoch adjustement (i.e. breaking
the rpm upgrade path). So any FC5 test/rawnihe user should consider
reinstalling when FC5 gets released.
Please note that the above is not true for ATrpms: The versioning
scheme and policies guarantee that no upgrade paths will break.
