"createrepo" would be much preferable to "createrepo -c file",
but I guess the latter should be doable (I'm sure someone will forget one day 
and b*gger everything up! However, I should be able to recover so long as no 
clients have died horribly)

If I could then have file contain instructions to
	process file foo if it exists
where foo can be .xml or .xml.gz, and there are smarts to spot that it's been 
asked to process repodata/foo.xml.gz and thus not leave it in .olddata/, that 
would cover my needs. Thanks.

So I don't need to learn to write python after all ?  :-)))
