Would it not be better to work with yum upstream to make the current yum
depsolver more modular so you could plugin another libsolv based depsolver,
instead of making a fork of yum and starts trashing the current API. There
is a lot more to yum, that just solving dependencies. And making a fork
there is not fully compatible will put a lot of work on your shoulders :)
without the benefit on the work done by yum upstream :) like parallel
download etc.
