OTOH anaconda *does* fiddle around with package selections to some extent on
upgrades: there's code for removing blacklisted stuff (linuxconf, no wonder :),
installing rhn-applet if up2date-gnome was installed, making sure certain GNOME
packages are installed etc. Whether rhgb should be automatically added on
upgrade .. well, I dunno.
