[Yum] bug: yum truncates output

When yum lists available packages (and possibly in other operations), 
it truncates the channel name, which in some cases makes it impossible 
to distinguish the actual channel name.

# yum list available |grep xen
kernel-xen.i686        2.6.18-8.1.3.el5   rhel-i386-server
kernel-xen-devel.i686  2.6.18-8.1.3.el5   rhel-i386-server
kmod-ipw3945-xen.i686  1.0-4.7.el5        rhel-i386-server
xen.i386               3.0.3-25.0.3.el5   rhel-i386-server
xen-devel.i386         3.0.3-25.0.3.el5   rhel-i386-server
xen-libs.i386          3.0.3-25.0.3.el5   rhel-i386-server

While the kernels do come from the server channel(rhel-i386-server-5), 
kmod comes from supplementary(rhel-i386-server-supplementary-5), and 
the others from vt(rhel-i386-server-vt-5).  Wouldn't it be better to 
let ouput wrap if necessary, than lose this information?
