It would be nice if cfengine could use "rpm -qa <name>" if the package name contained wildcards.


# rpm -qa system_bios*

In this case the name (specifically the device number) can be different on different systems, but I just want to know if *any* system_bios package is installed. Best not to do "rpm -qa" every time because of the extra overhead.
