It already detects what kind of connection you are on. When the
idle-bandwidth changes are done we can do things like this without
upsetting people actually using the connection.
I know it detects the connection but would like to have a preference
option that downloads updates in the background. I think that is what
Mac OS X does by default but I might be misremembering that.

Sure, remove PackageKit-yum-plugin or blacklist it in the yum
configuration. There's also now configuration for this value in the
systemwide config file, /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf:
Why would I remove PackgeKit yum plugin? I want to use PackageKit and
yum interchangeably. There are particular things yum makes easier and
there are particular things PackageKit makes it easier for me. I think
it is a common enough use case that I want it to just work without
having to tweak configuration files. IMO, the default state change
timeout value should be higher but I have done that for now. Thanks.
