No objections. All the other scriptlet types have specific 
disabler-switches, adding them for %pretrans and %posttrans would make 
things more consistent. The only reason for lumping them together with 
--nopre and --nopost back then was the rpmtransFlags bitfield was pretty 
much maxed out, but there's room for a few bits again.

What I'd *really* want to do is to split the scriptlet control flags to 
a bitfield of their own, but doing that without breaking compatibility 
is more work than I've managed to interest myself in so far :)
