This is great and all, but my first reaction was "Oh hell...what a
colossal waste of time" referring to the fact that I've spent the last
week or so pouring over rpm source code trying to see exactly what's
needed to implement some things.

So, that being said, if we are going to make this change in Fedora,
especially one that involves all this "backup for rpmdb, rebuild your
rpmdb, feed your rpmdb cake" stuff, can we make it a flag day and add a
few new fields to the rpmdb schema and bump the rpmdb version?
