Then don't use yum. problem solved.

You're right - if you specify 'yum update' and something fails, it won't
run the update. That's behavior that, to me, protects the user from
stupid stupid shite. I don't think holding back updates that have been
requested b/c others fail is correct or safe behavior.

Again, if you don't want to use yum, then don't. I have no problem with
that. I think there are lots of people out there who know that I've been
working quite hard to make sure that repositories are not bound up for
any one updater or pkg management tool.
