One thing I would like to be able to do with yum is see what
architecture something is so I can deal with conflicts a bit easier
:). I am having to roll out x86_64 boxes..

I would also like for some ways to deal with multiple repositories
better.. I am of the opinion that mixing repo's is silly.. but what do
I know :). My customers want to be able to get things from
Free/Non-Free/Red/Blue/Orange repos however they want.. and we have to
clean up after them.
