The archive differ and extractor operate on many more things than just
rpms, so prefixing them with just rpm- would be misleading.

Hmm, while I don't think there are big problems with the names of things
that do deal with rpms in the package, rpmdev-* could work, it's
sufficiently easy to type, descriptive, and relatively TAB-clash-free.

Here's the current list of utils and some comments about them; feel free
to throw in more suggestions or +1/-1's, I'll look through them late
next week and pick something based on the feedback.

   (somewhat misleading/generic? doesn't have to be typed often, so
    doesn't matter if a new name would be a bit hard to type)
   (--> xvf? extarchive? extrarchive? unarchive? dearchive? explode?)
   (somewhat misleading/generic?)

With rpmdev prefix, maybe something like this.  rpmde<TAB>X<TAB> would

/usr/bin/rpminfo (upstream name, unchanged)
/usr/bin/spectool (upstream name, unchanged)
