For composing tools with just kickstart configuration, I guess yum
plugins such as protectbase and fastestmirror are out-of-scope now,
would it be worth something to keep these in mind nonetheless?
(--protect?) Other directives such as includepkgs or exclude could
become worthwhile at some point, too.
