Is that were the bottleneck is? From what I see, yum spends a lot
of time trying to connect to countless mirrors, many of which are
down or which fail the integrity test. That doesn't depend on yum
itself, I guess.

I wonder what was the reason why yum wasn't written in C to begin with.
Anyway, looking forward to the FC6 yum.
