Pirut is good for getting the OS installed fast and then installing
groups of software.

Individual packages is better done with yum.

pirut might benefit from some interface changes, but imho it also needs
to be able to install updates to existing software at the same time it
installs new software - so that after installing Fedora, you can just
use pirut to pick your packages - and at the same yum transaction it
will install available updates.
