It is a difficult case the 'skip-broken' plugin i has written is working by depsolve each of the available updates, to see if it can depsolve without
errors, this functionality can be build into the YumBackend. But ït increase to time to get the updates. So it should be something there can be turned on/off. 

* Get the list of available updates.
* Foreach update check if it can be depsolved.
* if yes: submit package available if
* if no:  submit package cant foo

It i not easy to find the cause of why the package not can be updated is hard to get, because the error messages is not always clear.
