Actually it's quite new...
http://rpm5.org/cvs/chngview?cn=15680  optional-dirname-and-symlink-deps
http://rpm5.org/cvs/chngview?cn=15735  rpm-lua-extensions-based-on-rpm-lib-functionality
http://rpm5.org/cvs/chngview?cn=16017  old-comparision-behaviour

It came from splitting vendor configuration into autotools configuration:
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/rpm/+spec/rpm-split-vendor-config-in-autofu

Actual config is the same.

Not sure it's a good idea.
