Took me a while to realize that I needed to run 'yum install
yum-repolist' to get the plugin.  Thought updating yum-utils would
include this plugin.

Worked nicely on a C5 x86_64 system.  When 'priorities' was off,
'protectbase' was shown as True/False. When both were on, 'priorities'
was displayed.

Will be nice if this page is updated to include CentOS 5.

Thanks for the work,
