Hah! I'm not the only fool! I was just too embarrassed to admit it ;-)
First I installed the 'release' rpm for 7:
Then I made a list of all the fc8 updates:
# grep 'May 31' /var/log/yum.log | grep Updated | sed -e "s/ */\t/g"
The only way I know of to roll those back is to
1) identify the current fc7 package:
# yum list 'bzip2*'
2) download the rpm:
3) install them with
# rpm -Uvh --oldpackage bzip2-*.rpm
That's not so easy to script at a level I would trust not to make things
worse, so I'm just sticking to doing it by hand.
Some of the packages have some pretty hairy dependencies (filesystem!),
so I hope I don't break everything trying to roll them back.
Actually, everything seems to be working fine at this point, I would
just leave it alone except I'm afraid the fc8 packages would not be
updated correctly from here out.
