I constantly use repos that are on slow links.  So these repos are
disabled by default, but at times I run with enabled.  I never want this
cache to be removed as it would take forever and a day to redownload all
the info.  So for me, I'd rather 'yum clean all' cleans ALL the enabled
repos.  It really is 6 of one, half dozen of the other.  Either 'clean
all' means All enabled repos, or disabled repo means 'only disable from
install, but go ahead and mess w/ the cache'.  The upstream developer
has indicated which side he stands on, and which side he'll allow his
code to do.  End of story.
