So I got a chance to play with the new yumex this weekend.

good things:
 - it's not screen scraping anymore (yay!)
 - it makes browsing the repos quite easy
 - it makes repo addition/editing pretty easy

bad things:
 - the 'add a repo' interface is a little klunky
 - the remove-packages callback is pretty much nonexistent (not entirely
the fault of yumex)
 

I'm glad it's headed into fedora extras.
