Is there any "spec" or "documentation" of version checking and dependency checking?
IMHO to change, add features or reimplement existing tools or projects. we need documentation, like developer-readables-mini-rfc's
Read source code to extract logic will produce mistake's , specially with different languages.

Someone already answered that one, I'm afraid : The rpm source code.
You can speculate all you want on "replacement" methods to compare
versions, but chances you'll get it right are near zero... unless you
use the exact same algorithm (and trick and hacks?) than rpm itself.
