install smallest legal .rpm first

When installing or upgrading more than one .rpm in the same transaction,
often there are many linear orders for processing the .rpms that are
compatible with the precedence relations implied by %requires and %provides.
I want to use "smallest .rpm first" from all the compatible choices
because it will be faster on my systems.  How can I do so?
