You are trying to reinvent the wheel.

Apt, yum, et al all support the behavior you just listed. It takes a couple extra configuration steps, granted you still have to deal with dependencies which force updating... but that is something you can't get around unless your RSS can magically add pixie dust to make dynamic libraries irrelevant for the apps linked against them.
