I couldn't disagree more.
Using a centralized packaging system has the benefit to be able to 
install an exact version on all managed hosts. Show me, how to do that 
with pear.
Is pear also able to answer you: to which package belongs file ....?

I'd even propose to disable other packaging systems in Fedora, or to 
change them to prompt the user:

"Yes, I know this voids warranty and I'll take the risk"

(or something like that).

Pear is here just a example, but there are other package systems in 
fedora as well: python-pip, I know there's something similar in ruby
