I said it a lot of time, but let's do it once again.

It would be practical to know about files owned by packages, to verify
conflicts. Know about requires and provides, including virtual ones. And
of course package name and versions. Providing everything that repoquery
provides would be nice, in fact. If repoquery is there it is because it
is practical. It can be done through a web interface like in rpmfind
which does about the same.
