a couple of responses:
1. the rpmbuild split has existed for 3 yrs - it's just that rpm has
been legacy-ing the rpm -ba stuff over for a while - it got phased out
in rpm 4.1
2. the reason I brought up the yum-tool thing now was so that as
complexity increases I don't have to do the "keep rpm being able to do
the rpmbuild commands for a few years while people adjust" sort of work
that jeff had to do.
