The last I heard, the 'rpm' project is open source, free to be adopted by
any platform.

As for the rest of your comments, if we solve the general problem, I'm all
for including it in the httpd tree.  If we are solving specific packagers
problems, I'm ok with placing this in the httpd.a.o domain, but we should
move this nonsense outside of the development tree into a packaging tree.
