A nice guy named javier (who never includes his last name) sent me some
patches that I plan to read through very soon. I believe some of this
part is being addressed by his patches. (he's provided some really handy
patches in the past, too) Some semantics will have to change I think -
but not in horrible ways. I expect to be making a yum 2.0.1 todo list
shortly and a yum 2.1.0 lists too - 2.1.0 is where all the more-serious
breakage will occur - restructuring the versions is what I call
more-serious breakage.
