Example: Imagine, that %run_ldconfig was deprecated in SuSE several

Well, that's just a matter of making certain rpmlint check failures
finally fatal. It's just that someone will have to sustain the wrath
of packagers (and coolo who wants so create snapshots) afterwards :-)

I think, making them fatal is the final step. First collect which packages are
affected and create a list, so everyone can help sort it out.
