And together with the implementation and the metadata problems, it causes
quite some problems. I've seen many users who were annoyed when they found
out that yum refuses to run because something in the background blocked it.

Fortunately, here I cannot get it to start anymore currently (F-8):

# yum -y install yum-updatesd
# service yum-updatesd start
Starting yum-updatesd:                                     [  OK  ]
[...]
# service yum-updatesd start
Starting yum-updatesd:                                     [  OK  ]
[...]
# service yum-updatesd start
Starting yum-updatesd:                                     [  OK  ]
[...]
# service yum-updatesd status
yum-updatesd dead but subsys locked
#
# /usr/sbin/yum-updatesd -d

There is absolutely no need to enable the service in the package
already. It could also be enabled by the installer or in firstboot code.
Currently, it's not that the service is started when the package is
installed, it is started only after reboot.
