Please quantify easy.  Will you do it for me every time it
needs to be done?  Today I'd have a use for at least 6 variations,
although I guess you'd double that with the suggested overlap
of testing/staging instances. With a little thought about the process,
yum updates could be made to be repeatable without extra work, network
traffic or any other overhead.  I just don't see why this is not
considered desirable.
