It's the ~1% of yum users who are the vocal ones, since it doesn't

and using Fedora. I'm not sure how much effort is justified to satisfy
those with uncommon patterns of usage.



Almost entirely correct.


Howver (with some trepidation), I point out that user happiness does not always mean
that an application is correctly and efficiently implemented. There is lots and lots of room for
improvemnet in how package data is distributed, and how yum is implemented.


OTOH, yum is sane and reliable, gets the job done with little fuss and muss.
