Hauke, thank you for the suggestion. I've decided to go with excludes in the conf file for now but I might end up using this plugin in the future depending on what happens.

On Ubuntu, you can tell apt to simply 'hold' a package and it will just do that. Does anybody know of anything similar on RedHat?

there is a yum plugin for this purpose.

have a look:

Name       : yum-versionlock
Arch       : noarch
Version    : 1.1.16
Release    : 13.el5
Size       : 15 k
Repo       : rhel-i386-client-5
Summary    : Yum plugin to lock specified packages from being updated
License    : GPLv2+
Description: This plugin takes a set of name/versions for packages and
excludes all other versions of those packages (including optionally
following obsoletes). This allows you to protect packages from being
updated by newer versions, for example.
