Since I have switched to using yum with local repostories the following haven't
really been a problem, but since you asked and they bugged me in the past
I thought I'd mention them.

Until the kernel gets changed to allow larger command lines (which might
be pretty soon) it would be nice if rpm had a way to read in the list of
files to process via standard input or a file. I used to have problems
doing rpm -Fvh *.rpm when the number of rpms got to be very large. xargs
won't work because much of the time several updates need to be done at
the same time.
