This seems like a good reason to me to remove neon support from rpm.
Why would a person want to do:
rpm -ivh http://foo.com/bar.rpm
When they could do:
wget http://foo.com/bar.rpm; rpm -ivh bar.rpm
I think you should take this to the next logical conclusion. After
all, I'm perfectly capable of just downloading a directory of packages
and resolving the dependencies by myself, seems like a good enough
reason to kill off yum and friends. No reason to bloat a system with
python when wget is all you need.
