I am interested in ALL packages, however I don't understand what you
mean by "faking install-time expansion" or what %posttrans is. Could
you explain?

I am specifically trying to port etckeeper to PLD. For example yum has
an API that you can get callbacks pre-transaction and
post-transaction. Apt has command hooks that can be triggered before
and after any call to dpkg (or rpm). Pacman likewise has a hook system
that can invoke something pre/post any upgrade or install.
