FWIW, deltarpm is already in EPEL and I don't mind putting yum-presto
there as well (though both would probably be better served in CentOS
extras if we want CentOS to use them).

There are currently test CentOS 5.4 repositories with deltarpms at
http://lesloueizeh.com/centos5 (though they get updated manually, which
means not too frequently).

As for presto and courgette, I'll respond to that at:
