Jeff,

thanks again for your reply. Every time I ask something on this list I do 
not only get my question answered, but learn something new about RPM just by 
the way.

There's one thing I want to comment, though:

Since you're not only one of the primary maintainers, but have been with RPM 
since the dawn of time, I cannot think of anybody who's a better person to 
ask. Jeff, since you re-launched rpm5, you are more or less free to do with 
the project whatever you like. I mean, nobody can stop you from starting to 
create rpmbuild2. If someone's not content with that, well, they can as well 
join the guys who maintain the I-dare-not-to-speak-of-it rpm4 version at 
rpm.org.

Just my two cents. I really like RPM, and it has a lot of potential.
