Here's a freebie: Borrow from Livna's install script. It already has
provisions for smart and apt.
Guess what: it's not free -- packaging it/adding it to the existing packages
can easily sum up to and hour or two of work (sometimes even more if you
want to do them properly; see
https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13 for example). Which brings
me to the point I outlined earlier: "nearly nobody wants to do the boring
things or things that are only useful for other people"

Even worse: Seems the latest livna-release you get from
http://rpm.livna.org/ these days also dropped support for smart and apt; I
guess the livna people will readd it if somebody sends tested patches.
After I posted my message I rechecked, found the new main web page,
and the neutered release rpm. Bummer. I'm beginning to think this
merger is a shotgun wedding.

Then consider to help to make it better to suit your needs.
