Ah, the only possible problem I can think of would be that an "update" from 
vim-enhanced to vim-X11 may not be possible. It should be possbile to do

# yum install vim-enhanced
# yum install vim-X11

and then vim-enhanced would be removed and vim-X11 installed. I do not know, 
whether this works with only Conflicts: or if e.g. a Obsoletes: or something 
else then needs to be added to vim-X11.
