This is most likely not a good idea. Rpm is just not instrumented to be
used this way and most rpms are not built to deal with configuration
like this.

You're much better off taking yum and combining it with a good config
management system: puppet, bcfg2 to name just a couple of them.

If you're looking at push-oriented tools then you might want to take a
look at func and something I've recently been working on func-yum.
