"But how can I really be sure that ALL the data in that dir is
disposable, especially if the user has disabled the repo in question in
their config.

I err on the side of protecting data. If yum is not told to remove it,
then it won't remove it."

So this is not-disposable data needing protection. I translate this into
data that must be preserved. If it's not preserved it's not really
protected, right ?
