I was thinking about the listing of all the files in any rpm.
I figured package-based entries and then the complete file lists, maybe
marking directories with a type attribute.
but how to uniquely id the packages - should we use the package
checksum? or would nevra be sufficient, or maybe just the filename as it
is listed in the metadata file.
<package someidentifier attribute>
or we could do:
<package> someidentifier attribute>
I figure whatever identifier used here should be duplicated in the
changelog/misc metadata file too.
