Performant different from scalable.
And you didn't address the problem of not having proper error
communication, and I can add the lack of format API and mechanism to
signal deprecation to issue of CLI as a automation mechanism. You can
also add the fact that all CLI calls are synchronous ( since shell lack
advanced synchronisation primitives ), which is also something going
against modern scalability ( and by scalability, I do not mean "20
machines" like you seems to do )
The fact we use command line tools in %post in rpm rather than clearly
defined API to affect the system is one of the reason why rollback is
hard to automate.
