Not urpmf, urpmq and urpmi are.

Shell script:yes, rpm:no. It calls parsehdlist, which is:

[bgmilne at bgmilne bgmilne]$ file `which parsehdlist `
/usr/bin/parsehdlist: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1
(SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
[bgmilne at bgmilne bgmilne]$ ldd `which parsehdlist `
        librpm-4.0.4.so => /usr/lib/librpm-4.0.4.so (0x40024000)
        librpmio-4.0.4.so => /usr/lib/librpmio-4.0.4.so (0x4006b000)
        librpmdb-4.0.4.so => /usr/lib/librpmdb-4.0.4.so (0x400a8000)
        libz.so.1 => /lib/libz.so.1 (0x40167000)
        libbz2.so.1 => /usr/lib/libbz2.so.1 (0x40176000)
        libpopt.so.0 => /lib/libpopt.so.0 (0x40186000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/libc.so.6 (0x4018e000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/i686/libpthread.so.0 (0x402ae000)
        librt.so.1 => /lib/i686/librt.so.1 (0x402c3000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)
[bgmilne at bgmilne bgmilne]$

Since urpmf/urpmq/urpmi etc can work with any urpmi-enabled repository
(which must have a list file, and either a systhesis.hdlist or an
hdlist), it pressy obviously can't just wrap rpm.
