I was always told "no output allowed", which is sad. Sure, it might not
be seen in all cases. What would be cool is if there were some way to
indicate to RPM that progress was being made (some kind of incrementing
counter, or whatever) that could be pushed up to higher level stuff,
like PackageKit. I don't think there's anything today.
