[Rpm-maint] rpm feature request

Would it be possible in some future rpm python interface to get rid of
the horrible setVsFLAGS bitmask and just have the items be attributes
you set or unset in the ts object?

ts = rpm.TransactionSet()
ts.gpgcheck = False
ts.hdrcheck = True
ts.installroot = '/some/place'
etc. etc

I know 'being pythonic' isn't really a needed feature of rpm - but it
would make finding out what things are set and how the are set much

Does that sound reasonable/sane?
