If the transaction is being performed what alternative do you have?

reading from the rpmdb while a transaction is occurring is possible you
just won't be able to rely on the results as 'correct'

Now, if you're talking about grabbing a new copy of the metadata then
what we've put on the 'future' todo list is downloading he metadata to a
tmpdir, checking it out and putting it in place once its correct,
however, that's a bit racy b/c you end up with the potential for 2 or
more processes to want to write to the same location with, potentially
different data.
