ok then lets try it this way  - maybe as a part of the docs and I'll
gladly build rpms to meet all of these requirements:

I don't want to key off ver of rhl b/c the rpm ver can change inside it.

so lets base this off rpm version

rpm ver                         yum ver
4.0.4                           0.9.X 
4.1                             0.9.X with rpm404-python and librpm404
4.2				1.X or greater

Right now there are two branches of yum. There is the rpm 4 branch  and
the rpm 4.2 branch.

Would it be possible/reasonable to make it work this way? The headers
are still the same - yum-arch is almost identical in both (well, not
entirely, but close)
