That would mean that any use of say "rm" or "test" in the scriplets
would need a coreutils dependency. Since almost all upgrade/remove
scriplets test $1, we'd have to add coreutils everywhere.

Maybe we need a minimal assumed runtime environment just like we
define a minimal assumed build evironment? The definition of such a
beast would be the minimal set of packages that are needed to do
anything sensible, for example everything that is pulled in by
redhat-lsb (which includes coreutils).
