No, no, no, you don't understand the way this works.  There's no such
thing as changing package managers, all we can do is start over from the
beginning and throw out what we've done.  All we can do is a total
rewrite.  The installer calls rpmlib functions internally, trying to gut
these would be next to impossible.  We start with RPM, we stay with it.
No changing.  Remember, guys, this is a ONE WAY trip.  And, as things
stand RIGHT NOW, RPM is the better candidate.  TTYL!
