It's built on top of a scalable, fast and smart depsolver (libsolv)
capable of things that yum's depsolver can't even dream of. It also has
other large parts of implementation moved (or being moved) into
C-libraries to make the functionality available to non-python programs.
It also has an explicitly defined public API with deprecation policy
from the start, whereas yum's API grew in .. a rather "organic" manner
and people used whatever they saw, and none of it can ever be changed.
And its free to get rid of compatibility baggage such as compatibility
with rhel-5 (including eg. rpm 4.4.x) which yum still insists on.
