[LDM #BIW-247121]: best way to re-insert a product in an LDM queue under a different feedtype


Your idea of using pqinsert(1) to change the feedtype is a good one and should 
work.  Use the "-i" option to have the MD5 checksum computed from the 
product-identifier and ensure that all product-identifiers are unique.  This 
will allow the queue to contain the same data-product but with different
