Interesting.  From a quick look, I'd suggest relying more on exit codes
and textual output.  From the man page, if the exit code is 100, then
your system is not up to date.  If its 0, your system is up to date.  If
its anything else, yum had a problem running.  (A quick check just
showed python exits with a status of 1 if there's an IOError)

Checking the exit codes is a little more robust than your current
