Why should that make any difference?  If rpm can't handle being
interrupted, that means that it is too fragile for the job.  Handling
user interrupts is one of the most important features rpm can have.

Of course, i'm not saying that this makes the problem any easier to
solve, but to require that people never interrupt rpm is to require that
they never make mistakes, and we all do that...
