I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that. After using urpmi at home 
on Mandrake with more than 11000 packages in the configured repos I can 
say that yum is definately far slower with only ~4000 packages in 
configured repos. The whole "Setting up Repos" and "Reading repository 
metadata in from local files" is a real drag.
