[CentOS-virt] Tiny OT: yum priorities or protectbase

I'm elevating myself from "noob" to "noob with scars." I'm not one to
ask a lot of questions if I have time to find out on my own.
I now know at least a half dozen ways to hose a solid CentOS Xen
install. That's a good thing, I learn from mistakes. Like forgetting to
actually completely configure priority statements in the repo confs.
In the past I have used yum protect-base, but about a year ago or so I
switched to yum priorities because it seems a bit more granular.
Is there a recommended preference on CentOS Xen installs? I'm pretty
conservative now and won't go near Plus or Contribs, I do have Convirt
repos in and it looks like they pulldown a couple dependencies from
RPMForge (paramiko and socat).
I don't plan on anymore repos, but am wary enough to want to nail my
last install down.
Any prefs here for CentOS Xen? Yum Protect-base or Priorities?
