Except that there is absolutely no reason to use RPM! We already have 
our own package format that does everything RPM does and more. And 
without several of the disadvantages.

Converting Anaconda's Perl scripts to use the pkg tools instead of rpm 
should be a rather trivial. The major problems are elsewhere.
