No so; rhn-applet *has* been updated to handle repomd style metadata,
it's just broken (perhaps we should say "an attempt to update it to use
repomd metadata" has been made?).

Both up2date and rhn-applet still use a "headers" directory if you
specify a "yum" repo (rather than repomd) in the rhn sources file.
