The need to make sure that you update rpm or yum before you do 'yum

That's your opinion.  The opinion of the people writing the update tools
and preparing the repos and living through such "needs" and really
understanding what is actually going on don't share that opinion.


What is the matter with yum doing something like this?

if updated yum or updated rpm is available:
    if updated yum is available:
        update yum
        yum_is_new = true
    if updated rpm is available:
        update rpm
    if yum_is_new:
        sys.execv("/usr/bin/yum", sys.argv)  # replace current process with updated yum
