I like your idea here; reason being that with my local system, each host
here uses yum twice - one config for the redhat release and it's updates
(using "yum -c http://blarg update"), and one for 'extras', like select
freshrpm packages, and whatever else people ask for once I do the
rollout (using " yum -c http://foo install \* ").  Looks like this could
take care of that.

I agree with Troy about the syntax; the command-line syntax is great.
