Yum keeps a cache and database of what's in the repositories, so it
can search more easily when you're looking to install something from
the repositories. When it comes to the actual install/removal of
applications, that gets farmed out to rpm, so as Ralph stated: with
the exception of depsolving, yum remove and rpm -e do the same thing.
