urpmi support for software packages

It would be great if we could support Mandrake's urpmi in the Software Packages module, just like yum, up2date, etc. It is functionally equivalent. Kinda.


In short, you can do something along the lines of:

urpmi --force --auto package-name

And it will resolve deps and install the package (and "force" seems to tell it yes to all questions--though the word "force" in the context of anything to do with RPM is damned frightening). I haven't had time to play with this much, but it seems to still be the preferred package management and dep resolution tool on Mandriva. I'm going to use it in place of yum for the installer, so we won't have yum on Mandriva boxes.
