The Severn channel seems to be a lot mroe out of date than the packages
I can grab w/ yum.  In any case, it's not really that much of a problem
to me, I'm not even that fond the up2date UI.  ~,^

And, again, in many instances that RPM fails, the previous command or
app I ran *was* rpm (or redhat-install-packages).

And, even *if* a "previous app" is causing it, it's still happening,
which is bull.  I don't care what the cause is (from a user standpoint),
I only know that it stops working, and the only way to make it work is
use "advanced hacker black magic".  If there is a propensity for the rpm
command or redhat-install-packages to fail (which should be *fixed*),
then it should be very gracefully and cleanly handled.
