[Yum-devel] yum-updatesd and PackageKit?

I guess my question is: What is the future of PackageKit from the
yum-updatesd developers' point of view? Is PackageKit going to be the
default sooner or later, with everything talking to it? There seems to be
quite a bit of duplication of functionality with yum-updatesd but a broader
mandate. Is there a plan/intention to move yum-updatesd to be a PackageKit
client, or will they remain (presumably friendly) competitors?
