Seriously:

yum downgrade

and in F12 - try out things like the history undo options.

there are lots of potential nasty situations that can happen but I think the general consensus was 'screw it, let the user sort it out if it breaks, which it often does not'

generally, if the app you updated modifies its data format and cannot revert it then the user is SOL - but that's not _THAT_ common and when it does happen it's certainly not yum's fault.
