The point of the object is that we SHOULD have macros for this, it's

Agreed; here's a start: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/120635


How about agreeing the definitive list and releasing it in the next most
convenient release of rpm?

In addition to the above, a %{pyver} (primarily for python-abi) and a
couple of incdir (arch dependent/ arch independent) macros would be
welcome.


Keep in mind that normally stuff like %{pyver} is a horrible sin in RPM packaging because you cannot depend on stuff being in the buildroot during RPM spec parsing. However in the case of perl and python we do it anyway because they are within the minimum package set.


Querying perl and python: OK
Querying mozilla or qt  : BAD
