Description of problem:
I think it would be more useful if pirut didn't automatically quit after hitting the completing a transaction. I don't know if this is eventually planned for or not.

In using it today, adding and removing a few packages in one transaction caused some dep problems. I then tried proceeding in smaller chunks but having to restart pirut after each step was less than optimal. I realize broken deps may be less of a problem when we're not dealing with rawhide, but I don't really see a reason to force a user to build one big transaction instead of being able to do it in smaller pieces.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install something with pirut

Actual Results:  After installing, it quits.

Expected Results:  It should stay running in case I want to install or remove something else.

The problem is that by doing installs, it basically invalidates the set of
information we have and we'd have to do a lot of rechecking.
