Well, here's the thing.  That's what yum says when you tell it to
"install" something that's already installed.  If you were to do
"update" then it wouldn't complain.  I'm not suggesting that you do
update instead.  I'm just explaining that this is valuable information
for many cases.  Therefore, I don't think it should be moved.  

Also, I DEFINITELY don't think that log messages should be moved
between minor versions as it could screw people up who do/don't expect
things the way they are.

Now, if you want more fine-grained log levels, you'll get them.  These
will be overhauled in HEAD and provide more granularity at the low end.
