Please explain how "transactional updates" and "rollbacks" are suposed to work. Sure, in complete absence of bugs and requirements to tweak changed configuration files, they are easy. But (as always), practice is mighty different from theory. They aren't in mainstream package tools (APT, RPM), and not for lack of imagination by their authors.
