I like it and would love to do it.  The problem is that I'm currently
using yum's built-in output and modifying the size to be the deltarpm
size.  I used to put an * by deltarpm'd packages, but found that that
can screw up depsolving (because it's actually modifying the package
name used in depsolving).

What would be great would be if yum's output allowed some kind of
comment column that plugins could use (or if it gave more freedom over
changing the display name of the package).

Thoughts, comments?
