Yum is a true package manager.

I see your point, a graphical front-end for yum would be useful.

I don't think yum should merge with up2date. Yum bypasses up2date
functionality right now and frankly I don't use up2date ever because
it's still buggy (On my FC1 and FC2 systems).

I'd really like to interface the rhn applet with yum, or at least to
make it configurable so you could launch your preferred update command -
in my case `xterm -e yum update` :)
