Most processes I've seen so far on the lists here, although funcional,
are very far from that I'm aiming at.
I want something clean, and 100% based on RPM (the script I'm proposing
would only create a rpm package). In this case, it is better to
start from scratch.
I'm not saying ther other method aren't good. They just are not what I
want, and it is very easy for me to get on the wrong track is I
base my efforts on theirs, as good as they are.

As usual, time avaliability is my main problem. Thankfuly, at this point,
I'm mostly running scripts and parsing results (gotta love sed).
