if you have a running daemon(yum-updatesd/yumd), why not just use it as
a persistent daemon rather than depending on dbus to start it each time?

Also  - it lets us work with the portion of the market who run servers
and like the idea of a daemon they can query for pkg information, but
don't run dbus.

We turned dbus off everywhere we could - it just used ram and didn't do
anything for me running a webserver.
