 Is it worth adding yum-cron-daily/yum-cron-hourly so you can only add
one of them, if you want?
 Having one default on and the other default off seems confusing. But
then we also have the "yum makecache fast" systemd timer now too, which
is mainly what I thought most people would have yum-cron-hourly doing.
 As a "feature" could split the packages have yum-cron-daily
provide/obsolete "yum-cron", and change yum-cron-hourly to do security
updates by default. This would also solve the "what is a simple way to
get security updates" question I'd seen recently.

 What do you think?

 Other opinions? Ales?
