Yes, it has a command line tool called rug.

I have nothing against yum from a technical standpoint. I do have
ergonomic issues with it. I agree that a good graphical front end to yum
is desperately needed, but some of the functionality that I think is
missing and which I described in my original post needs to be in yum
itself.

I wonder if the red-carpet codebase could be used as a starting point
for a yum front end? It really was excellent ...

Best, Darren
