At the end of the day, if the OS doesn't give you atomic multi-file
transactions, and your %pre/%post scripts aren't also written
perfectly atomically, I would say that it _is_ impossible.

If the %pre/%post scripts are not atomic, it's impossible. However, atomic multi-file transaction support from the filesystem is not necessary. That part is perfectly solvable.
