yum is, but rpm (which includes rpm-python) is not; that will take
significantly more effort to put in (e.g., Add/Remove integration).
I don't think Window's Add/Remove is equipped to handle a bazillion
RPMS. Though putting a single "Add/Remove RPMs" entry that starts up
gpk-application or something isn't a bad idea. All of which is moot
until RPM actually works on Win32...

I don't think there would be a bazillion RPMs; most of the
infrastructure is already provided, so it would be things like widget
toolkits, specialized libs (e.g. liboil), and of course apps.

Have you seen a Windows installation's Add/Remove menu after a long series of security updates? The number is staggering.
