The argument is that is PackageKit should replace yum-updatesd on fedora
and this functionality will be required by some users. I can see the two
files split out into another rpm or deb, something like PackageKit-cron.
Plus, then I can then install PackageKit on my NAS (just a Fedora 8
install) and just let it do the right thing even when it's sitting there
without a user logged in.
