While I agree that we should avoid calling rpm, I believe we would be better
of by doing it in a way that could get accepted upstream.  Any idea how to
modify the patch to work also on rpm based systems?

Perhaps look for /etc/debian_version and only use rpm if it is missing?
Other ideas?

Happy hacking
