Cool, this could be a start indeed =) Still, IMHO if it is intended to
be widely used it should demand less user effort to be configured and
tried out, and could be a little more user friendly (e.g. don't output
yum's messages directly, instead show some higher level output). And,
of course, don't violate the "don't touch anything" assertive ;-)
