How to install RPM as a user, root installation not allowed

Currently I am using RPM 4.8.0, which quite some patches already. One of is ability to install packages as user, not at as root. We are running a system where all your packages must be installed with a special user, which is not root for security reasons.

Does RPM already has the options for non-root install, or it still requires patching to drop root user check?
