Summary0021081: Add option to use yum instead of wc-yum
DescriptionThe "wc-yum" utility is used to provide progress data in JSON format - handy for presenting this information to web-based widgets. However, it does not behave exactly the same as "yum". In particular, trying to install an already existing package returns success in yum:

# yum install glibc
Package glibc-2.17-222.el7.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
# echo $?

But returns an error in wc-yum:

# wc-yum -i glibc
... "Error, no packages selected for install."}
# echo $?

This is a "Good Thing" in most use cases, but it can pollute the system log with unwanted backtraces for unattended upgrades e.g. see 0021021

Provide an option to use "yum" instead of "wc-yum" when installing packages.
