Description of problem:
Updating yum from fc3 to fc4 doesn't check for an updated version of rpm-python. Yum does require an update of python to 2.4, so rpm-python (based on python 2.3) doesn't work anymore.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use yum to update yum
Actual Results: yum stopped working because rpm-python is outdated
Expected Results: yum should have provided a dependency on a newer version of rpm-python, so it would be included in the update.
This actually is fixed with FC4 as we've introduced the python-abi autodeps
