Not just RPMs, RPMs I already have installed.  And I want to download RPMs
purely because I often don't have the time to install everything from
tarballs, and RPMs are easier.

Apparently the next version of Red Carpet will do this.  I'll try that one.

I'm not sorry... so what if my RPM database has some dependency issues, my
system works fairly flawlessly.  If Red Carpet chooses not to allow me to
install software because of the RPM dependency issues, that is a problem for
the authors of Red Carpet, not me... I will simply not use their software.
