Though, will dpkg and the like be purposely crippled on Fedora like
rpm is on Debian systems? It probably would be a good idea to patch
dpkg and stuff to make sure they don't work as standard packagers, but
rather just helpers to alien, as RPM does on a Debian system. We want
to avoid the possibility of package jumbling.....
I have tried and dpkg fails when launched as a package manager, so I
think it is safe. Moreover it could be possible to use it to install in
a chroot, so crippling it is a bad idea in my opinion.
