I would suggest that first "we" gets defined.  There are really three
different sets of RPM users, and each is going to have a different set
of requirements:

- People who create RPM packages
- People who use the "rpm" command to manage packages
- People who are writing tools that manage packages
- Standards organizations who want a defined package file format

These four groups are going to need different things, and quite possibly
will use different portions of rpm.
