=).... It really makes no difference to me I just am pointing out that  
with rpm's that I do use if I were to tell it on a production system  
to remove itself then that is what it should do whether it's a smart  
move or not ;-).

Rpm's are great for certain applications especially those released  
from the OS vendor. But 3rd party app's like torque I would rather  
compile to make sure it works on my OS of choice without problems.

Politics has no role on the torque list =P
