My original response was assuming David was talking about the update
checking manager.

As to the applet, yes, you very well may want that in C. The python
abstractions for the applet aren't really light - ISTR that a good
20MB of the applet's memory use was just in the core applet code
pygtk, outside of any RPM information.
