[Rpm-maint] [wish] src.rpm management

  Not a big issue, however odd -- rpm can install source rpm file, but 
it cannot list it or uninstall, user has to to it manually.

  It would be useful to have additional flag for rpm, like "--src" to 
include source rpms
rpm -qa --src

would list also src.rpms, in uninstall, lists, etc.

  My main point is -- tool which is able to install X should be able 
to uninstall X as well.

  Your thoughts?
