 The main reason┬╣ it was a daemon initially is that pirut/pupplet spoke
to it over dbus.
 Changing yum-cron to use yum-updatesd --oneshot was on my TODO list a
long time ago, but it turned out to be non-trivial and keep backwards
compat. with both pieces ... so nothing happened to either piece.


┬╣ One other feature is that we wanted "hourly" but with a random start,
so if everyone turned their computer on at 9am it wouldn't slam the
repo. ... this might be possible in newer cron's though.
