Thanks Tate. I know the "downgrade" option well. I wouldn't have posted
my question if it were that simple.

As I said previously, we use ansible, and its "yum" module invokes:

yum install package-version-release

I expect yum to honour this, and downgrade a package if necessary, but
it's not doing that.

Given the lack of opinions here, I'll file a bugzilla report and see
what the maintainers say.
