Proposed yum_host plugin

Description of problem:
I maintain a local yum repository with a small number of custom packages for use on my own system.  About a year ago, I adopted mock for better cleanliness and automation.  Given that I want to target the exact set of packages available to my host system (considering updates-testing enablement, exclusions, and my high-priority local repo), rather than try to adapt the provided yum configs, I wrote a mock plugin that allows mock to use the host yum configuration (and optionally cache) directly.  This may offend some people's sensibilities, but I would claim that it is a very practical solution for end users.

I'm attaching the plugin for your consideration.  It would need at least a minor cleanup before being accepted.

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-06 20:09:01 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
