But _who_ decides to "freeze"?  I mean, that still does not
solve the problem of someone wanting an older revision of the
repository than even the "freeze."

Which is why I'm working on the simple hack to maintain all
prior createrepo runs, and add the small logic required to
support it on the YUM client.
