Yum has good support for it already. Avoiding upstream would require
torturing yum first to populate the local cache, _then_ transposing
the local cache for the external repo. Possible, messy.

I struggled a tad with how ImgCreate drives yum libs vs how yum itself
does it, but only a couple of hours, now it is solved, and working,
and I already had a positive email from upstream. Looks like it'll
come as a F17 update :-)

The code in OOB is finished, I'm about to post a branch for review.
_All_ modules support offline after an initial online run.
