Fedora and Fedora Legacy package versioning schemes (was: Retain upgrade paths)

A little observation I haven't seen so far.  (But I can have missed it
in the long thread, sorry if so.):

It will matter that "rhnumber" < "number" only for systems from FC1
and on.  And those systems come rpm > 4.2.  Systems with rpm < 4.1
should never have to see the packages without rh.

So it ought to work out right in practice.  It's still kludgy, though.
