Just use PackageKit

Just setup PackageKit to autoinstall all updates, and install yum-presto. No need for yum-updatesd at all, PackageKit can use the presto plugin.

Re: Just use PackageKit

Don't want to have auto-install, but do want to have download prior to executing yum / PackageKit so that it goes smoothly (this is a slow internet connection...) Possible?

Re: Just use PackageKit

BTW, reasoning is that sometimes updates break something, so the more conscience this lady friend is about updating, the better... thanks to yum's downgrade feature she now knows how to revert the update should anything be troublesome. It's just so that the updating itself does not take ages on a slow network connection

You don't need yum-updatesd at all, having it installed may collide with your intended manual updates. I usually leave it down or uninstall it on slow connections (dial-up and such), after all, I want to update whenever I feel like I have the resources to do so :)
