These are already in use on Mandriva and part of the helpers migrated
from rpm-mandriva-setup.

Both commit messages, entry in CHANGES and the code itself should
generally have at least the bare minimum to provide some pointers for it..

I've placed it under mandriva #ifdef, so it shouldn't break things for
anyone else on the
production branch..

If I'm gonna be able to migrate to the internal dependency generator, I must add
these to avoid ~regressions.

If a discussion and test cases is required provided first, I won't be
able to have time to
switching to the internal dependency before after next mandriva release..

Or I can go back to maintaining patches locally in cooker svn..?
