Updated patch against current rpm fedora package
Eh, the bugzilla diff viewer doesn't seem to handle diffs of diffs very well.
The diff in comment #3 was somehow so garbled I ended up rediffing from the one in comment #1. Anyway, support for it added in rpm-4.10.0-3.fc18 and enabled in redhat-rpm-config-9.1.0-32.fc18, both just built for rawhide.
This appears to be going without complications, time to close the bug...
