Ok just to repost - here's the current delta to livecd-creator

The first part is answering "Why is my network pegged?" (though does
anyone know if there's a nice way to use something like Wireshark to
get this info?)
Don't know of a good way. But like I said with the first time you
posted this, I'd much rather just one line per download rather than
multiple. It's more inline with what yum, etc do and it also means less
logs to slog through.
The second is defaulting to a persistent cache for downloads. This
not protected against concurrent execution - should we go ahead and
add a --nocache option for those people who have a local fedora
Given the fact that concurrent operations will cause problems here and
there's no real clean-up policy, I still think that a shared cache by
default isn't the best idea. I'd be up for a cachedir that can then be
pointed to a shared location if you as the person running know that you
want to; but for the general case, I think it's a little too risky as it
 Or, if everyone really wants shared cache, then the right thing to
do is to probably use under /var/cache/yum and take the yum lock. Which
means no software installation, updating, etc while running
livecd-creator, but at least not another place to have to look for
"where did my disk space go"
