Not in, but yum works fine with rpm-python from @rpm5.org.

(aside)
There's one minor issue with a StopIteration exception
from a python iterator for which both a fix and a 3 line
change to yum are known. There's no place to put the "fix".

There are "features" in @rpm5.org that will never be supported
by yum. You can either disable the feature, or otherwise
work around yum developers recalcitrance.

Note carefully:
	Yum will NEVER accept any patches from @rpm5.org.
	Clearly and publically and repeatedly stated by yum developers.

But I use yum with @rpm5.org all the time, and IDMS linux ships
with yum+@rpm5.org as its depsolver. I.e. "works".
