We have not done anything here, however we have discussed pulling out
some kernel modules that are not needed for virtual appliances. There
is not an easy way of doing this without "breaking" rpm, current
thinking is to use white/black listing of actual files.
Do not work outside of rpm for these things. Work within the system you
have available and/or modify it upstream. Working outside of it means
that all the tools we already have to work on things w/i the rpm
framework have to be modified to work nicely with what you're trying to
that's just extra pain.
