My statement that you can use rpm was for extracting the tar, not installing
the packages with it.

So your expect dpkg-rpm not only to extract the tar, as you have written,
but also to execute the control scripts, do the registry and so on? I fail
to see that alien is that far, so I wonder how a build in method would work
