On Fedora there is "yum update" and "yum distro-sync", which are
distinct commands corresponding to each of these behaviours.  So my
thought was that we could add a fourth "Sync" option to the
Keep/Curr/Exp radio buttons.  I've attached a barely tested *draft*
patch along these lines, but it almost certainly needs more work.
