I don't know if this feature already exists, so forgive my
ignorance if it is already there.

I think having an RPM equivalent of Systemd's
"ConditionVirtualization" will be very useful
for controlling packages that are intended for
virtualized environments. It could gracefully
warn users about unsupported environments. It
can also be overridden using some switch to
force ignore the warning.

For example, it would be very clean to say if I
can specify "Requires: ConditionVirtualization=vmware"
to disallow my RPM installation on non-VMware
environments and at the same time have a switch
to force install in case that is what I really
want to do because I'm building an image for
different runtime environment.
