Launching Package Kit

Okay, what is the binary for Package Kit? I have no icon for it on the menu, and I've tried launching every variation of "packagekit" I can think of from a terminal. Yum says it's installed, but I have no idea where.

Nope. I have Users and Groups, Service Management, Firewall, Network Device Control, and the other things I've come to expect to be there, but no Update System, View Packages, or any such.
