While I'd rather not venture into political quagmire's, I believe
that history shows that Solaris support has always been
better with the rpm5 code base than with the RedHat rpm.org code base.

Beyond that rather nebulous observation I will not venture. Way
too many quidnunc's around, and I'm more interested in seeing
engineering problems with rpm on Solaris solved.
