The yum command line tool is great for anyone who wants to see more of
the guts of package management.  However, PackageKit is neither
unreliable nor barely communicating in my experience, and I use it
most of the time in Fedora.  Yum also has bits that allow it to
communicate with PackageKit when run on the command line.  This system
works quite well.
