Nice ;) maybe rpm should be modified to to allow us use debian packages :) ?
<no_flames_please>
btw: does rpm stil hang with large rpm -Uhv / -ihv and do we have still to 
killall -9 rpm; rm -rf /var/lib/rpm/__db*; rpm --rebuilddb; ... ? AFIK rpm in 
rh8 was not able to relocate packages at all and hangs sometimes, in rh9 just 
hangs...
