Can we maybe deliver working yum config files that automatically are fine 
for the CentOS + RPMforge case when the priority plugin is enabled.

Much like we did with the protectbase plugin.

CentOS would be priority 1, CentOS Extras priority 2 and CentOS Plus 
priority 3 and RPMforge and others) priority 5 or 10 or whatever 
(priorityless ?).

Giving Extras something else than 1 would make sure that a human error in 
Extras would not lead to anything that is hard to turn back. (read: 

Making things easier to protect CentOS users (by default) should be our 
main focus. If people have problems nevertheless, we can assume they knew 
what they were doing when they changed the default case.
