Description of problem:

Say you make a typo in yuminstall.py (or any other backend). The import
of this will silently fail, leaving you with a rather blank backend.

This makes the installer work for a while, and then fail later in rather random

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

Yeah, this is due to how it happens in the installclass and there's lots of
handling for bad installclasses.  We should try to make this better for F10
