Yum in rawhide has been broken by Python changes (caused by Python 2.4.0

breakage has been going on for a while and effectively halts the testing
of other packages. Can we please resolve this one way or another so
Fedora development can continue?

Relevant bug is:

Sorry for the fuss...

You couldn't just add this to the bug?  The bug appears to be in a beta
release of python 2.4. I could put a couple of patches into yum but
they'd just be a hold over until python gets fixed.

Well... it'd be much easier for a user running the current python to get a new yum RPM to be able to fix their system than to go through the dependency fun that is upgrading python when something like yum is "busted". I am OK with this not going into the upstream yum package, but it might be worth adding to our packages for the time being....
