Or, we install yum-presto by default but disable it. So the first thing
someone with bandwidth issues does is enable the plugin.

Neither of these will happen because they require esoteric knowledge of
yum plugins that users don't have. So if we turn it off by default, it
will not be used by a significant percentage of the people for whom it
is beneficial. And all the infrastructure cost we put into maintaining
delta rpms is effectively wasted...

Not really and you're being a little dramatic, I think. If we don't install it but have its default state be 'on' then they can just do:

yum install yum-presto

and then they're done.

On the other hand someone who has good bandwidth can easily also do:
yum remove yum-presto

and it is off.

As I said when asked the last time - I don't have a preference if it is installed and on or not installed. I don't consider the single command a significant barrier, either way.

I don't think it is the end of the world, either way.
