Is this a problem with the database sheme or with RPM? Other Distributions
like Debian use debconf (which I personally do not really like) to handle
post-installation tasks like that.

Also RPM should be able to open a (gtk)dialog based script for
configuration. It might also be an option to provide useful upgrade notices
and a short link to them after package installation.
