Hmmm ... rpm5 isn't exactly "heavy", just maximally featured: the fundamental basics
are still quite lean-and-mean.

If you can itemize the details of (not) "lighter", I'm quite sure
I can beat the crap out of (wrto any performance metrics, and
even memory size tunables) any other package manager on the planet.

Assuming a fair engineering bake-off however: most complaints are all anecdotal
and opinionated, often irrelevant and surreal, these days.
