[ATrpms-users] excising nrpms from my install...

I have to say smart is pretty impressive. Using channel priorities I
was able to get it to do what I wanted:
$ smart channel --set nrpms priority=-1000
$ smart channel --set rpm-db priority=-1000
The first says nrpms is BAD... ;-)
The second says whatever I've got installed is worse than the non-nrpms
channels (even if the version out there is older)
$ smart upgrade
Then smart offers to downgrade all the nrpms packages because they are
lower priority than the other channels.
Thanks to Gustavo Niemeyer for the handholding required to understand
the rpm-db priority setting.
