And you clearly don't like the idea that I might edit the elrepo.repo
because I might only want to allow *one* package, even though everyone
knows that some other elrepo packages result in conflicts with the base
CentOS repositories.

You didn't care to pay attention to what I *DID* post. The rest of it was
identical to, in fact, what I posted twice. I did not feel I needed to
clutter up the mailing list the way some folks do, with many dozens or
hundreds of lines of error messages or config files, when I certainly know
enough to pull out the relevant information.
And the guy who *did* read what I posted did help me.
