rpmdb only store Fedora Core packages.
rpmdb is huge : 37 Mo.
rpmdb help to provide a "poor resolver" to rpm. yum/apt/up2date do a
better job.

Since rpmdb is huge, perhaps rpmdb should not provide 
/usr/lib/rpmdb/i386-redhat-linux/redhat/ (97 Mo) but a tool to generate
the rpmdb base (like rpmdb-fedora.spec does).
