Yum is already a backend for up2date, providing support (albeit slightly
broken, at least in FC4) for repomd metadata.

uhm.... im pretty sure up2date has its own implementation of repodata parsing.
It's difficult to call yum a "backend" for up2date when up2date
doesn't use any of the yum codepath.

Sure about that?

"from yum import repos" looks like it's using yum directly to me.
