This is broken. It breaks at least livecd, stateless, OLPC and other use
cases where you never run things such as %post on the machine that boots
the OS. The fix is easy though: the bus needs to run this on start-up
and cache it in a file somewhere for future use.

(Oh, btw, count yourself lucky that I decided to spare you of my rant of
how things like %post et. al in package management is broken in the
first place and leads to hard-to-maintain operating systems and subtle
bugs on up- and down-grades. But that is a harder problem to solve.)
