A couple of RFEs I'd sugest:

  - with 'yum check-update' - it would be nice to see the current
   version of the package as well.  (it could be with a --long-list
   option which assumes 132 char terminal)

  - /var/logs/yum.log has stuff like:
06/11/04 09:14:29 Updated: cvs 1.11.17-1.i386
   It would be nice if the current version of the package is also logged.
