Hmm after little investigation I found, that convert deb, tgz, slp to rpm isn't
problem. But reverse conversion is big problem. For example, if I want to
convert rmp do deb, I have to have installed dpkg[-dev] and debhelper, which are
debian packages for creating deb files. All of those packages aren't in fedora
repos.

So, question is, if one-way conversion is a sufficient reason to create alien
package. Other solution is create another package (like deb in OpenSUSE) which
contains those debian packages and make alien dependant on this new package. Or
let alien be forgotten henceforth.
