reason to get upset at all.
Speaking purely for myself and my own usage, I think this distinction makes
plenty of sense. Except I don't even really want the old packagekit tools.
If I'm looking for something desktop-application-y, an "app store" seems
like a great feature, and I'll probably use it for convenience.
If I'm looking at a lower level and thinking about _packages_, I probably am
thinking from a command-line viewpoint anyway, and using yum directly is
exactly what I want.
