You may be able to override the definition of rpm itself (is it called
via a macro?) - to be RPM="rpm --noscripts" ... hard to say without
seeing the scripts though.

If that route were taken, theres no need for pmcd.pid anymore, it should
all just be backed out. Not sure I'd favor that though, its painful to
maintain a separate patch, and effectively reduces testing coverage from
both sides of the mangrove/oss fence.

That'd probably work, I guess. Just looking at that other patch you
sent out now, which looks like a third option... (doesn't seem to do
either of the above things afaict).
