last time i looked, you could do all that in one step:

Yeah, see my other reply from two minutes before yours. ;)  There
has been a thread on fedora-devel some time ago where Panu mentioned
that this feature would/might be dropped from RPM. Further, it's a
bad habit of mine to suggest wget/curl plus rpm because with that
combination, a copy of the downloaded package is saved in local dir
and can be reused in error conditions, whereas rpm works with a tmp
file. (not so important for tiny files, though)

true enough.  i actually would never use the above shortcut for
anything but the most minor of downloads and installs.

Or you can just click on it in a browser and let the browser run rpm for you. Unless you just like to type...

And I have been thinking that up to last week, I could get vlc any time I wanted. I am sure things are different now. And I am sure it will get easy again soon.
