Uh, naive question to the master: why is it any difference at all (if any)
with the "old" centos-release? 

Isn't "yum update" (even with 'centos-release' excluded!) supposed to bring
the *latest* versions of each and every package, no matter it still believes
it's on CentOS 4.3?!

The repos are the same "4" (not "4.3", not "4.4"), so what's the big deal
about the actual version of CentOS?!

Or maybe the actual problem will be some broken dependencies!?

I'm stunned.
