Yep, this script does. Ok, so again I'm eager for the next RPM milestone

I guess it won't be used often, but in this case it's extremely useful. Can 
you tell me the revision number in the 5.2/trunk branch that introduced it, 
perhaps I'll just patch it into 5.1.9 by myself.

Yes, I promise I won't whine if I break my own RPM installation by doing 
this. :-)
