>     o Clean up naming of classes and methods.
>     o Work out what all of the dbus signals will actually be called

Robin, this is looking good, have added the missing parent class 
declaration and import of parent class.
I have also addws a new yumDBUSBackend.py with a yumBackend class based 
on the daemonBackend.PackageKitBaseBackend.

Next step is to make some kind script to easy test the different backend 
methods, so we can test it direct without the frontend, the same way as 
we can run the different helper cmds in the old backend.

something like this would be useful:

dbustest <action> <param1> <param2> ...


dbustest search-name yum

should do the same as

./search-name yum
