   I *think* the confusion arises (for me) more in the long term, when I
find these files 6 weeks from now and wonder if I've done something wrong.


1) Move *.rpmnew to *, overwriting the existing files with the new, but
identical files - This works

2) Delete *.rpmnew - This works

3) Leave the *.rpmnew files there - this works, but potentially causes
future confusion?

   Do I at least have the options correct?
