When you can use the search/find function of smart, which works in the
blink of an eye and a bazzanium times faster than yum to select the
packages to administer, it's only the download time that is relatively
the same, although I think it faster, IMHO. I've mastered it to the
point of being completely free of the discussions on how to find a
package using yum. 

The only thing I don't like about smart is it's propensity to dnload
multiple packages at once, which will leave packages stalled in the
process. I've love to know how to cure that so that it never dnloads
more than 2-3 files at once. Ric
