It would be very nice, but there is a problem. Well, Yum doesn't support
rollbacks, rpm and up2date does. And the Yum guys doesn't seem to be
interested in implementing that feature, although Yum can repackage all
updated or erased packages thoe. Yum doesn't provide features like
'up2date --list-rollbacks' or 'up2date --undo'. I would definitely like
you to drop up2date, and especially rhn-applet, but it would be very
nice if we all try to make Yum guys to provide that rollback feature :)

Maybe it would not be a bad idea to make at least up2date into Extras
for now and to remove it when Yum guys provide us the rollback feature.
I hope they will do that.
