You were talking about upgrades, and now about fresh install. Correct me if
I'm wrong, but what redhat/fedora does when you upgrade a system is not a
rpm -u --force $list
or something like this? I've been upgrading redhat systems since forever and
they behave just like that (with the inconvenient of screwing stuff at /etc
and renaming my configs as file.rpmsave)
