1) you chose not to use yum during the install but are upset that you 
can't use the installer's yum configuration after the install? Ok.
2) This is a RHEL bug, there is no choice not to use yum during the install
3) yumpayload.py is on the way out. It's already not the default. The 
equivalent bug in Fedora, 1152753, I already closed as no1cur. This will 
all be fixed in the near future with `git rm
