 There are a lot of non-silent admirers of this idea too! I love this
idea! All the yum developers and rel-eng love this idea! I've yet to
speak to anyone who doesn't love this idea!
 In fact this thread probably started because yum/rpm/etc. developers
had recently talked about "app. install" again, so Seth spent half a day
implementing a proof of concept: 

 To repeat _nobody_, that I know of, is arguing that we shouldn't do
something. The problem is in rushing from there to "XYZ is something. We
should do XYZ."
