Yeah, don't mind me.  I seem to enjoy re-inventing the wheel.  :)  Ah,
well, it didn't take that long as I mostly just pulled out the code that
matches the "mother" src.rpm to the binary rpms.

The only reason I posted it was for completeness; it's what I'm using
for the test presto server.  Prunedrpms needs some form of repository
management before it can recognize the old drpms, and prunerepo (as well
as repomanage) fits the bill.

They're just there to test and make sure that compareEVR is working the
way it's supposed to?  Better safe than sorry, though I wouldn't expect
compareEVR to suddenly reverse how it works...right?
