That's not going to work very well if the user is waiting for the
command to finish. Fedora 21 is also using the hawkey backend which
doesn't spawn, and is much more responsive. In master I've added some
code for threaded backends (like hawkey) so they use a lower I/O
priority, which most of the time is the action making the system feel
