I remember someone on the list a few weeks earlier, had written a patch
(or were about to) - so that vbuild could use any packaging system, as
long as someone wrote the package-specific details for it - in other
words a modular approach. Check the mailinglist archive Vlad did. (btw.
the google search is not working yet - sorry :-)

It probably wouldn't be the hardest thing to pull out, all rpm commands
and exchange them with funtions, that simply choose actual command based
upon 1 extra variable stating the package system it needs to use.

Have a blast :-)
