And to continue from the previous mail, do we really want to have no 
fallback for the next version of yum?  That makes things entirely 
incompatible from the point of view of a user...  changing the default 
here makes plenty of sense, but I'd expect to fallback to the old 
locations for a release cycle or two just so that people can adapt over 
time rather than it being a hail mary
