[Yum-devel] Bleeding edge new feature

I would like to see an option whereby I can defer updates of selected software that I choose by xx days. My idea is that for certain updates, I don't want to be first to receive them, ergo, I don't want to be on the bleeding edge.
I thought that since we have a yum config file that has the exclude statement, that we could use the same parameter, only with an option. Here is an example
exclude xconfig.* --delay(10,yum,yumex,othermodule), kernel
For the comparison date, I would use the directory timestamp of the rpm file. The fact that we may be off a day or two due to timezone differences does not bother me. I just don't want to be the first to install certain updates.
