Note that they did not reject the pull request, but merely commented on 
it; it is still open.

What the upstream probably meant is that rpm could also be defining 
these values somewhere, and so instead of just re-defining them blindly 
to arbitrary values in libsolv, you should take them from rpm header 
files, or otherwise figure out how the header limits are handled in rpm.
