I love the idea of having a more generic repo check tool where all kind of repo related checks can be:

something like the way yum commands are implemented in yumcommands.py.

where we have a base class with some generic methods that each check should inherit and implement, i will make it much 
easier to maintain and easier to add new type of checks.

It could work something like

repocheck somecheck [<somecheck args> <somecheck cmd option>] <general options>

<general option> is yum options inherited from yum cli like debug level.
