What is the best way to package big/redistribution restricted files?
Packman seems to use,
but it has the problem that it isn't integrated with RPM. From an user
POV you still get updates automatically, but you can't use rpm -V to
check the installation integrity.

There is anything better? Any plan for repositories with metadata that
point to BitTorrent packages? A patched rpmbuild that adds the RPM
headers for unpackaged files that get downloaded in a %pre scriptlet?
In the worst case... from a quick look I didn't saw anything, but
there is any library to easily access to the RPM DB so I could patch
autodownloader? addFile(package, file_path)?

...and, we have any official "limit" to the file size of a package?
When it's a problem for mirrors?
