to be fair, yum is already in the repository, so does smart.
Apt-rpm is unmaintained, but if someone does the job of taking care of
it, it could also be.

And we also have poldek too, not sure about the status of this one.

So, for people who are not happy with the default, do not hesitate to
test others packages managers and report issues ( for example, yum does
requires specific indexes that we do not provides at mandriva, but we
could add them if required, i guess ).
