Sure thing.  We should file a bug (feature enhancement really) against
RPM and then forget about the unowned directories thing until that bug
has been resolved one way or another.

I don't know if you agree with me, but I think the _right_ way to
solve this is once in RPM, not 48235 times over in all the packages in
Fedora.  Even if the RPM implementation is a bit tricky, it's surely
easier than pushing this job down to every packager.
