Probably the best option is to provide gnorpm functionality through a
library or a bonobo component. Bonobo is neat because as applications
are written using it, they can (more easily at least) but turned into
Nautilus views as well. The advantage of the Nautilus View is that it
would be a lightweight, quick sort of way to do the "90% of the common
operations" on a package, probably upgrade and install.
