Keep in mind, that my intent for such a thing, is not to run install side,
but to process batch jobs of package verification on SEUL's server... speed
here isn't a concern... (As long as it's not trailing behind our future
home Linux network server -- 20 MHz '386 w/ 8MB RAM ;)  It doen't have to
be fast, just has to run... In fact we can run the (virtual) clock slower
so the software thinks it's running faster, if necessary.

I'm just saying we should change the name to keep from confusing the users...
How does Easy Linux Package Module (ELPM)?? I guess it just doesn't have the
same "ring" as 'RPM' does...

Comments? Suggestions?
