Just a FYI for anybody starting to play with this:

This can't be done with current yum plugin infrastructure - plugins in pre/postresolve slots can't affect the result code yum itself sees from the depsolve stage, meaning even if you fix the transaction set from postresolve yum will still stop with broken deps errors. So, it's possible to write a proof-of-concept plugin for this but it wont be able to do anything without some changes to yum itself.
