ARPMATS to some degree duplicates the capabilities of APT.  If it used
APT, it would support both RPM and DPKG natively.....

It's currently relying on up2date for some of its intelligence, so that's probably the duplicating part.

The problem is, we're using RHEL here, and I need to support RHN-style repositories. The only way I know of doing this is to use up2date. Someday, I'd like to write dpkg/apt modules, but I doubt I'll get the time anytime soon.
