I've just gotten home and haven't had time to bring in everything (too 
tired) let alone set up my laptop.  However, man yum has this to say 
about reinstall:

Will reinstall the identically versioned package as is currently 
installed.  This does not work for "installonly" packages,  like
Kernels.  reinstall  operates  on  groups,  files,  provides and
filelists just like the "install" command.

Nice idea, though, and thanx for the thought.
