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):
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.
