A real long term solution might be to have a kind of dynamic exclude
list (done by a yum-plugin with pre-generated lists maybe? no idea, just
thinking loud) that would exclude all packages depending on
python-imaging on EL5Server.


I wont be able to install plone or anything pythonish because of this
on server but I can on client?

Proposal:

Compile a version of python-imaging that matches what is in the base
OS. The EPEL version is 1.0.6 and the supplied version is 1.0.5. That
sounds the most reasonable.
