buildrom doesn't do fallback in general.  Technically its not very hard,
but it isn't very generic - there is a lot of platform specific thinking
that needs to happen, and that adds further complexity.  Especially if you
want to be able to turn it on and off by configuration.

But we'll add it to the list - its good to think about that kind of stuff.
