Something that was discussed on fedora-config-list was if
system-config-packages interface could be coupled to one of the various
backends to help with the interface. A redesign of the up2date ui to be
geared more toward installation/removal/etc of packages instead of just
updating would also be adequate.

I definately think system-config-packages needs to be upgraded and tied into yum and apt. This will make it a true "Pacakge Managment" tool
