Ya, that would work, too.  ;-)

Better also if you can get system-install-packages hooked up with those
two tools, so that when I grab a package from somewhere other than a
registered yum repository, dependencies can still be resolved and
installed.

It'd also be nice if yum supported 'temporary' repositories that were
passed to it on the command line or through library calls, so, for
example, an application RPM could include some meta-data pointing toa
repository containing dependencies, so users don't have to a) manually
add the repository to their yum.conf or b) manually download all the
dependencies.
