Please clean up the distaster package verification is.

rpm -Va is so incomplete it spawned rpmlint, package-cleanup and not doubt
others I forget about.

Even for the most basic checks its output is so useless and difficul to
parse we've seen a critical path package like gdm shipped with the wrong
file permissions without anyone noticing.

All those utilities need unification and the output format some serious
re-design so old and new packagers can be directed to a single tool that
does not need pages of explanations before its results can be exploited.
