Well, there's really three directions:

1) write the entire manager in python, using the yum code and the python
   D-BUS bindings
2) write the manager in C, using C D-BUS bindings, and shell out to yum
   python stuff for updates, querying, etc
3) write the manager in C, using C D-BUS bindings, and using rpmlib

#2 is architecturally ugly. #3 is just... no.
