Just to be on the safe side, I installed both plugins and have them 
configured now.  FWIW, I did a yum check-update and for some unknown 
reason, I got no dependency issues and nothing was tagged for update!  
Surely the addition of the protectbase and priorities plugins didn't do 

I appreciate all you all have responded, and apologize for the lame 
questions.  Time for me to do some more list reading I suppose.
