I don't think so.  That would be nice very though.

But what would be *really* cool would be to have the next-generation
yum-arch search .iso files for rpms and generate meta information for
them as well, indicating the offsets into the .iso file that contain
the package.  Then mirrors wouldn't have to carry two copies of every
package, one in the .iso, one in an exploded tree.

Seth, are you keeping a wish list? :-)
