If you are running yum by hand frequently then you are doing something
wrong in the first place.
Wrt your earlier stability complaint Paul, you might not that an
apology was issued by the Fedora crew this weekend over the borked i386
Perl released on AMD64.
I have yet to have a problem with yum and I just have it automatically
update my system every night unless a very high priority security
update is made available that I feel needs to be installed in minutes
instead of hours.
I also use apt and fink on other systems where those are the default
meta-package manager. IMO, one should use what is reliable, keeps your
system patched, and is low maintenance. Often times that is what is
shipped with the OS, not what is grafted on by 18 year old hackers
