Well I know this sounds silly, but, in the case of yum people use it on
non-redhat platforms. I'd actually feel bad telling them 'yah you need
this red hat specific library, named rhpl' in order to use it.

putting the name of a commercial vendor in the library name is kinda
'blah' anyway.

(this, of course coming from the guy who wrote yellowdog updater,
modified, so I completely understand the hypocrisy) :)
but to be honest most people miss the yellowdog part entirely, for some
reason.
