Description of problem:
In addition to (or instead of) the current system, Redhat should use apt-for-rpm
to make it easier for people to install additional software such as video
players, mozilla plugins etc...
Some sources like freshrpms.net could even be configured by default.
PS: I know that's not the best place to make such a suggestion but I can't
figure out which "package" this wish is related to.

apt4rpm has a number of places where it does questionable things with RPM and
doesn't fit in well with the rest of our system.
