 There are a few things we "get" from rpm:

r1. Call back data.

r2. scriptlet errors (goes to a file that yum can then read).

r3. Return codes from the transaction, and it's elements.

r4. What is actually in the rpmdb at the end of the transaction :).

r5. Maybe some other stuff I've forgotten about.

y3. beg/end rpmdb versions.
