I've browsed through it (http://www.redhat.com/rpm.html), and it is
remarkably like the current debian system, except that is uses
unmodified source and lacks some of Debian's sophistication 
(start-stop-daemon, detailed depends/conflicts).

Perhaps it would be a good idea to try to work towards a PCKGSTND,
together with Red Hat and other distributions.

Bruce, Ian, I've seen some hints about cooperation with Red Hat, 
can you give us any details?
