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, 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, but if
the DNF team can't/won't support system upgrades, I'd still recommend
dnf-plugin-fedup over the existing fedup.
