Enhancing the upgrade/install experience

I need some help.....
During testing of different rawhide releases (alpha, beta, rc's, etc) I usually
have an existing system and would like to install a "duplicate" of my old
system. This is also true if I upgrade from release to release. I would like
to get a list of existing packages (rpm -qa | sort > package_list) and somehow
feed this into yum (or?) and have the packages installed if not already
installed. I would also need a list of packages that could not be installed.
This way I could start with the live cd or install dvd, do a fresh install and
then update to a duplicate of my old system. So, is this functionality
available? Can it be?
