True.  However, I inferred from what the OP wrote that the download time 
was an issue.  And, if you stop and think about it, it probably is.  F 
15 just came out; lots of people have just upgraded to it and are 
sucking down whatever updates have come out since F 15 was finalized. 
This can be slowing down the downloads until things stabilize.  If so, 
presto can be a big help.
