I looked over the api for librpm.  Unfortunately it's not as flexible
as I'd expected.  It will allow you to construct an rpm into a file
descriptor or install/read from one.  You could possibly setup a pipe
to construct the rpm into while simultaneously installing out from.
Otherwise you would have to hack the library.
