1. shouldn't yum remove every part of /var/cache/yum not covered by a

or at least flag them (yum leftovers can be huge, a repo can consume
hundreds of MiBs in old downloaded packages, and people seem to like
renaming repositories). Unless there is some other reason to keep it ?
(but then it does not belong in /var/cache/yum anymore)

Are you effectively arguing for a --deleterepo=<name> option, where this would remove both the <name>.repo file and /var/cache/yum/<name> plus contents?

Other than that, I'm with everybody else that thinks the current behavior is just fine.
