[Yum-devel] [PATCH 0/5] Partial delta metadata parsing support

This series adds partial support for parsing delta metadata files to
yum-metadata-parser. Why is it only partial support? I didn't bother to tackle
the python interface yet, so we've got to decide what that will look like. For
instance, will the python code drive ymp one delta file at a time, or will it
pass in an index file, or a list of delta files?

What is implemented:
* Code to remove a package from a sqlite db (untested).
* Code to parse delta xml files for primary, filelists, and other.
* A test program for the delta xml parsing.
