Negative on 3, that's exactly the other way around. Rpm itself is still carrying far too much baggage that doesn't belong in it, and these language specifics are exactly the kind of thing that we're pushing *out* of rpm. Not because they're inherently bad or anything, but because we are the worst possible keepers of that stuff, this belongs into hands of people who know and care about those languages.

As for 1, that's a distro integration issue. We did similar things with 4.15 and the world didn't collapse.

2. is a legit concern wrt rpm-extras though.
