Actually, some support for this was written into RPM in 4.6, and then
taken out in 4.7. :) Mostly because no-one really used it, contributory
factor being that it did have bugs related to the above.

Mandriva implemented some support into urpmi, with the same result - it
did, more or less, actually work, but had bugs and very few people
actually used it (may have been a communication issue).
