David,
 I have similar worries. I've been encouraged to possibly look at using
the rhpl package (red hat python library) for functions in yum and the
rhpl functions/classes are really quite nice, but I'm a little hazy on
requiring them for yum b/c I'd like yum to be useful on other platforms
than just rhel/flc/rhl.

I'd love to hear suggestions on this problem, especially from the red
hat folks. I know at least one person at red hat does understand my
concerns.
