[Rpm-maint] question

Hello, all:

Is it possible to have a scriptlet access the stored scriptlets of another, already installed, package?

During upgrade, I understand the old preun/postun will run after the new pre/post. That should mean the new package has a chance to patch the scriptlets of the old package if they are buggy, so they can run last without breaking things they used to break.

Is this possible at all? Has anyone done it?

Any help greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much,
yours truly,
Victor Secarin
