Nicolas Mailhot seems to be advocating something like that and the main
thing holding me back from it is that, as has been pointed out, it would
seem to involve a nontrivial change to the inner-workings of rpm and
introduce a lot backwards-compatability issues.

But the guts of rpm's machinery is not something I'm familiar with
enough to comment much more than that.
