We made a design decision with yum-presto-0.4.x to not support deltaurl
anymore (mainly because it increased the size and complexity of the code
by a large factor).

In the short term, that's a pain because the official repositories
aren't presto-enabled, but once they do become presto-enabled, all you
will have to do is install yum-presto without making any configuration
changes.
