Comment(by sridhar):

 yum-complete-transaction won't rescue the RPM if the installation was
 aborted when %post scripts are being executed. As far as the rpmdb is
 concerned, all the files are there. We need to be careful when creating
 RPMs to not rely too much on %post scripts, or have them short enough to
 minimise the chance of their execution being interrupted.

 Also, we should inhibit system suspend while RPMs are being installed.
