Are you sure it is necessary to write it in low-level language? May be it is
better to write it in perl or python? I think vunify program will spent it's time
in system(or external program) calls mostly, so there is no serious reason to
use C++ unless a very good library for rpm manipulating is already written.
Also C++ can make porting vunify to other package sytems a bit harder. I'm using
Debian Linux, and porting current program for using dpkg took 10 minutes for me,
but I'm not sure that C++ version can be such easily ported or extended.
