I do agree with you. I even posted on the BTS the URL of GPLHost's own
Debian repository that I manage so there is a workable solution NOW.

My employee, which know python a lot better than me, is working on a
patch. I'm not sure we will be able to have it working without
python-iniparse, but we will try.

That being said, if we can't have a working yum without new python
modules, I do insist: yum shall be REMOVED from Lenny, as it's BROKEN.

More about this later on, after Manuel's python work on the package.
