*that* and other things missing are example why this thread is not
terrible or useless and as you have seen the cache is coming back
which was declared as "useless" by DNF developers before this

honestly i am *not* testing DNF *because currently* it lacks obviously
features which makes it a no-go replacement for my envirnonments and
*the main reason* for this thread was push it in a direction where
it makes sense for me to have it on my testserver, even risk a dist-upgrade
on a VM and give feeback/karma for updates - as said - ASAP and not too
late to get things fine before it really claims to replace YUM
