Is it possible to tweak the file information in the RPM package database 
so that I could update a file from outside and still keep the --verify happy?

My use case is that I want to provide updates for a bunch of huge RPM packages
but I only want to update very few files in each package so it would be a huge
overhead to have all the hundreds of MB to be downloaded/installed just to get this.

deltarpm would help me but my target platform is RHEL 5 and AFAIK
this deltarpm is SUSE specific. yum presto is not applicable as well as it is
not part of RHEL yet.

Any ideas or comments welcome,
