  i realize that the -C option means that yum should run from cache only,
so it's confusing when i run

  # yum -C list installed

to still see

  in all fairness, based on how quickly it runs, it seems that the command
isn't really consulting the repos, but still, it's confusing to get the
impression that it is.  is there a reason for this?
