Anyway, the presence of this bug prohibits mixing numerical and

comparisons should be avoided for legacy considerations.


At one point you should consider if providing a fixed rpm version for
all affected systems and have all updates depend on this rpm version is
not easier than trying to come with the perfect backwards-compatible
macro.

Exactly. And given rpm-4.1 from RH8 as an example, why would anyone WANT to not upgrade it... =)
