I prefer putting the size first, and sorting normally. The numbers get 
formatted to a uniform width, so the package names line up prettier too.
rpm -qa --queryformat '%{SIZE}\t%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}\n' | sort -n

This means you don't have to scroll back to get what you're looking for, 
namely, the largest packages.
