Impressive: after the repository data has been downloaded, the
calculation of the update from Fedora 10 (x86_64) to Fedora 11 takes
less than two seconds (practically instantaneous!) on an Athlon64 X2
4600+.

Please release this as a separate project to help cross-distro
development. This would be a pretty nifty tool in Fedora as well.

PS. Some kind of a download progress bar (speed & % of completion) would
be nice.
