Packages that depend on the RPM3 mechanism will need to be upgraded too,  simply
get new version of all the RPM packages (build, devel, python and gno) and
upgrade them all at once.  Or you can remove build, devel, python and gno with
"rpm -e ...", upgrade the base RPM package, and then re-install all the
aforementioned.  When your all done to an rpm --rebuilddb.  The only UGLY you
might hit is needing a new version of db which means upgrading glibc.  But that
is usually pretty painless too, and current versions actually do threading much
better (OpenLDAP's slurpd works for example).
