Wow! sadly it's doing just partly what i need it to do and development
seems to be (nearly) dead.. i need to be able to access the RPM
database that yum creates or i need to have some kind of api that can
do everything that yum can (i prefer that).

But for your question. actually: Yes. And why you might wonder. Well
do you know of any RPM frontend that really gives you what you need,
looks good, works stable and is easy to use? some come close (Ubuntu's
Synaptec) but none are as good as they might be if some more time was
spend on the gui. PackageKit is also looking good but i think
something like the mockup (from njpatel) i showed will be way better
to use.
