[opensuse-packaging] RPM 4.9.0

Now that 11.4 has been released, when Factory will start to use RPM
4.9.0? And... what that means to packagers?

* "Dependency generators are now pluggable. Arbitrary number of
dependency types is supported, new types can be added through a
drop-in directory and file classification is now done with a
combination of path and libmagic-type include/exclude regular
expressions (XXX add link to documentation once it exists)"

How they exactly work? Something should be changed about %wx_requires?

* "EXPERIMENTAL support for package "collections" which are sort of
like named triggers that only run once within a transaction. This can
be used for example to avoid redundant calls for cache updates etc.
(XXX add link to documentation once it exists)"

Experimental? Should we use this instead of multiple calls to
gtk-update-icon-cache? It's expected that openSUSE 11.4 + 1 will use a
newer RPM where collections are no longer experimental?

* "Short-circuiting binary builds is now allowed by rpmbuild for
developer convenience while testing. Short-circuited packages are
tainted with an unsatisfiable dependency to limit their use for the
intended testing-only purpose."

How? Is this possible through "osc build"?
