While I also would have preferred lower numbers for lower priorities
there's no wrong or right involved here. Both directions make sense, and
it's a matter of taste what to prefer.

Right, and since people rather used smart than yum, it should
really be the former's way.

The restriction [1..99] is artificial. The priority is stored in the
.repo file. It was requested to support what YUM uses.

Internally the priority found in a .repo is mapped to [-99..-1] within the
full integer range of possible priorities.

We could as well use some 'smartlikeprio=' instead of 'priority='
and allow the full range of priorities.

More like 'priority=' and 'yumpriority='.
