so I've spent some time making the yum config file routines as abstract
as possible so it's just a few python calls to import all the config
stuff and a few more to download and import all the package information.

I did this to accommodate this type of request. Things I don't think
belong in yum but the yum infrastructure should provide for.

So writing external scripts to use your yum.conf and your yum repos to
data mine in some way is not hard.
