pirut basically *is* just system-config-packages adapted to yum.
Unfortunately, that largely required rewriting as all of the backend
code was very specific to the implementation of hdlists, etc.  While in
the process of doing this, I've gone ahead and gotten one of the most
common requests (a "view all" list mode) for s-c-packages implemented in
the new code base.

I'll add making improvements for 800x600 to the list on my whiteboard.
It shouldn't really require much in the way of major changes.  And yeah,
the graphics right now were my quick and dirty attempt at having
something started.  I should be sitting down with Diana at some point
this week to get prettier ones.
