Well, as suspected, it crapped out again. I get this at the end of
the fedup command:

	Traceback (most recent call last):
	  File "/bin/fedup", line 239, in <module>
	  File "/bin/fedup", line 219, in main
	    for line in s.format_details():
	AttributeError: 'ProblemSummary' object has no attribute 'format_details'

Prior to that, I get a ridiculous amount of package conflict errors,
most invoving perl:

	perl-Params-Classify-0.013-7.fc19.x86_64 requires 

So, I guess I'm in deep trouble here. I suspect this is going to require
a full install of F20 rather than a fedup. Dang!
