There are a few other patches that I haven't pushed onto master yet
that might be worth including.
Support ~ in rpmvercmp. I don't think anyone needs this feature, but
it was nearly free to add.
Fixes for two old bugs. One makes sure non-l-flags don't get reordered
and the other adds support for circular requires. I feel good about
these changes, but they do muck around with the algorithms so a second
set of eyes would be useful.
Luca's new autoconf macros. I think these look good but could use a
little more polish to be friendlier to use. I'm indifferent if they go
in now, but they're close to ready IMO.
Re-enable Requires/Requires.private for --exists. I think this is an
important fix since the autoconf macros use --exists to determine
whether to continue or not. If they don't resolve Requires then you
can end up succeeding with missing dependencies. On the other hand, I
know --exists resolving Requires.private has been controversial in the
past, so I think you should take a look at this.

I don't mind doing it.
