It is this exclude=foo that I'm interested in. If you have 
the setup you have described, then one would not need exclude 
as the yum priority should take care of versions shouldn't it?

If you have say webmin from webmin.com and there is webmin 
in all those repos then it might be good to use exclude but shouldn't
the plugin handle versions between repos?
