I *think* that what Michael is talking about is that when you get to
that point yum is still running and can be a substantial part of the
memory pressure.

Perhaps yum's memory footprint could be trimmed? If by then it's
loaded hard-to-shed things (like python libs) perhaps it can exec a
minimalistic "yum stage 2" that drives rpm?
