It'd be interesting to see how much space something like this would save first.


$ rpm -qa --changelog | wc -c
11597562



As they are stored compressed, it is much less:



Headers are compressed only in yum-2.0.x archives, no place else, certainly
not *.rpm files nor in /var/lib/rpm/Packages nor in any transaction set memory.

(FC3 binaries rpms).
