The dependency resolving is done via RPM for the most part. The yum 
hackfest in FUDCon Boston 2007 recently was focused on generating and 
using the sqllite backend directly and fall back to parsing the metadata 
from XML only when the database content is outdated. That I heard has 
resulted in substantial performance boost. That along with a patch to 
use queries more effectively should make things better soon enough.
