[Rpm-maint] RPM database on NFS root

Are there any plans to be able to host an RPM database over NFS? See 

For our manchines which use remote root over nfs, we use an ext3 filesystem
mounted over gnbd network block devices to place the rpm database, which
appears to work (except gnbd is missing from Fedora...) It would be nice
not to have to do this.

If rpm could use a sqlite database instead of BDB, this should allow it to
work over NFS. Are there any plans to support sqlite?
