Yes I agree about the compatibility, very brainless to just go and 
remove them, I can't imagine how many scripts thats going to break let 
alone all my stuff...
It changed from Centos 4.1 to 4.2, Wget versions 1.9 to 1.10

the best thing is to regress Wget or bypass it from the yum update 
process, can anyone remind me of what to put in yum to avoid updating wget?
