I'd like to see it happen. Things that need to be finished before it's
1. finish the rpmUtils class use
2. implement a yumException so I can throw exceptions rather than
sys.exit on certain nasty states.
ideally a gui interface could just import what yummain imports and
replace a few things in the callback and clientstuff.
or just import what it needs from the other files and run from there.
