Actually, I've installed downloaded RPMs just by clicking on them.

I have also created my very own local repo and configured "smart" to 
recognize it as another "channel" and to install it whenever I have 
built something new for it.

Nevertheless, the ability to install any RPM package is one of the 
things that caused me to stay with KDE when I tried it out. (Of course, 
moving from a Pentium III to a Pentium Dual Core with 3 GB of RAM did help!)
