 So I'm going to assume that we're, again, ignoring a bunch of real
Fedora users who use gnome-terminal on the desktop ... for all those 60+
year olds who don't, and are about to be a majority of our users RSN.

 But I have to ask, is gnome-PackageKit part of the desktop?
 Assuming so, are you suggesting that gnome-PackageKit override all yum
downloads that happen from as soon as a user logs into the desktop?
 Or maybe that some yum related downloads will happen with the "desktop"
proxy settings, and some with the "system" proxy settings?

 The desktop is more than just large _monolithic_ applications using the
glib main loop.
