How difficult would it be to have this be something sensible like,

Very difficult, because one does changes without commit, runs 'make
rpmball' and expects that rpm -Fvh *.rpm continues to work.

Right. Personally, I think trying to make "rpm -Fvh" work for all the use cases a developer might want is more hassle than it's worth; as I said, I have scripts that just do "rpm -e" in such cases. I wouldn't oppose it, but I don't really support it either.

Ian / Ian / Wei, any thoughts?
