Michael - one note to the patches you checked in.

in 2.x you could maybe grab __version__ from yummain - or find a way of
setting it from there

or alternatively, push it into conf as  conf.version, or the reverse.

you get the idea.

I couldn't put version in the config stuff for the --version command b/c
that part happens before the config exists - but certainly we could
conf.version = __version__ after the conf has been setup.
