Well, afaics most of the other linux command line tools don't support
such stuff, so why should rpm? IOW,

$ strings http://....rpm | less"

doesn't work. But

$ wget -O - http://....rpm | strings  | less

does. So

$ wget -O - http://....rpm | rpm -ivh

would match the behavior of other tools (but doesn't work afaics -- that
maybe should be fixed).
