Disable pk and do the updates directly via yum.

Bam - no more requests to reboot.

I get what you're saying, and it's kindof a fair point, but there's also
some utility to having the system automatically, proactively notify you
of updates.

And you can do that. Just don't have pk DO the update.

There are lots of ways to get notifications of updates not using PK in
the system.

And again, we're not talking about for the default everyday user.

we're talking about the experienced user who is comfortable knowing what
does and does not need a reboot.

All I'm saying is - we've not taken away any option, the experienced
user can do what they want.

True, but the default should be sensible.
