Really? Then "Obsoletes" in Fedora 7 is broken.

The old hal.i386 on x86_64 is installed (else it would not conflict), but
not available in the x86_64 repo anymore. When hal-libs.i386 (in the
x86_64 repo) obsoletes hal, this means that hal-libs.i386 will replace
hal.i386. Yum will pull in hal-libs.i386 and remove hal.i386 -- if it
doesn't, behaviour has changed.
