It's a much better solution than *current* fedup, but yeah, it's really
just a proof-of-concept.

The concept is that System Upgrades should be done as follows:

  1) Prepare an Offline System Update[1], with $releasever=NEW_VERSION
  2) Run the offline system update

...which means system upgrades are really just big updates. So it makes
sense that the update tools should handle them, not a special tool
maintained by the installer team.

So, I'm trying to get support for this stuff into DNF itself[2], but if
the DNF team can't/won't support system upgrades, I'd still recommend
dnf-plugin-fedup over the existing fedup.
