I couldn't agree more. I find it plain silly to almost always have to
execute "foo args &>/dev/null || :" in scriplets, when getting the
output of the command as well as knowing if it actually failed or
succeeded can be interesting information. If we could have a log file
of rpm operations output, it would be really great.

*BUT* this does mean breaking backwards compatibility in many cases
(i.e. having failing scriplets leave duplicate packages in the rpmdb).
