The thing I hate about that syntax is that it lets users do some very-
possibly stupid stuff w/o having to think very hard.

Making it a two step process at least makes them think a tiny bit more
about the very-possibly stupid act their about to undertake.

oh and for future reference: consistency with rpm's user interface is
not and will not be a design goal of yum development. It may end up that
way, occasionally, but it's not going to be something that drives my
decisions.
