You say "rpm sucks"; I'd say it is the fault of the spec file author not
fully understanding the spec file syntax.  "#" is not a comment in a
spec file.

Now, if you had said "rpm spec file syntax sucks", I might agree (I'm
not blaming the authors/maintainers of rpm; the spec file syntax has
just grown crufty).  It eventually is going to need a re-write, but
that's going to suck, because there are so many weird spec files out
there that no automatic translator will do the right thing in every
case.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
