Default yum doesn't work as expected with "clean"

The "yum clean packages" command removes all cached rpms as desired, but leaves
all the drpm files. I wondered why my disk space was getting tight on a small
server, and that was the issue. Is that intended behavior?

I'll be happy to file a bug if not.

It appears to already be reported:

I wonder if "yum clean plugins" will remove them?

yum clean metadata

But that cleans the big file lists and such as well, which may or may not be
desired behavior. Over a relatively slow network, probably not.
