...although the plan for F10 is to have this data provided by
mirrormanager, and have PK/preupgrade/livecd-creator/etc. use that to
figure out what releases are available. So PK's yum backend won't
directly require preupgrade anymore.

So it's a valid question. In theory I think it makes sense for all
Desktop installs. But I'd like to see wider testing of preupgrade-0.9.8
before I commit to that.
