Since when was yum-presto about time? I thought it was about 
bandwidth usage. Here, the dorm connections are capped at 
600kb/s (well, not a hard cap, but it can be annoying anyways). 
At one university I know (with over 20k students on the main 
campus), there is (or was last year at least) a cap at 2GB / 
week. Go over and you're capped at 56k for the rest of the 
semester. I can't imagine Fedora on such a restriction (and I 
have 4 machines to update, 2 with largely non-overlapping 
package sets, the other 2 are similar and a caching server would 
help) and that's a lot of students that would be hard pressed to 
use Fedora at college. CPU time is cheaper than bandwidth these 
days. Maybe I'm mistaken about what yum-presto was aiming to 
solve?
