And because we all know technology is perverse, vindictive, comedic and
unreliable, you should maintain complete control (IMO) by doing what so
many others have suggested (IIRC), similar to the below.

In CentOS-Base.repo, for [base] and [update] add lines similar to this

    excludepkgs = firefox

and in [centosplus] add a line like this

    includepkgs = firefox

This prevents any updates to the base release from wiping out the
version from plus.

GUI!? We don't need no stinkin' GUI!  ;-) If you step in GUI, it
probably *does* stink!
