Well that wasn't what the package was installed for.  It was installed
so that PackageKit could have the appropriate information to check if
there were distro level upgrades (say 9 to 10) available for you.  The
upstream has been asked to please not install any software in Fedora
without a users consent, so hopefully this scenario won't happen again,
at least not with PackageKit.
