caching of repo when creating media for install



Thanks for fixing  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=560078
which was a problem with "doubling" the pathname prefix of files
when both TMPDIR and --installdir were specified.

I'd like to go one step further when using yum via pungi+lorax to
create a DVD.  Today I see pathnames such as
  /dev/shm/pungi-2121/lorax.ui8uIi/installtree/var/cache/yum/lorax-extra-repo-1/packages/e2fsprogs-1.41.11-1.fc14.x86_64.rpm
which results from shell environment variable TMPDIR=/dev/shm/pungi-2121
and parameter --installdir=/dev/shm/pungi-2121/lorax.ui8uIi/installtree .

Instead, I'd like to remove the --installdir prefix from the path to the repo,
leaving just:
  /var/cache/yum/lorax-extra-repo-1/packages/e2fsprogs-1.41.11-1.fc14.x86_64.rpm
This would allow for persistent caching across repeated runs of pungi+lorax.
[I would manage the repo "by hand."]  How can this be done?
