Eh? jbj has confirmed on multiple occasions that there is NO DIFFERENCE between PreReq and Requires.

Prereqs are different from requires only in that a PreReq is guaranteed
to be installed before the package that contains the PreReq.  PreReq's
are used only to order packages, otherwise PreReq's are exactly the same
as a Requires: dependency.

Yep. In my experience, at least for FC2 (and most earlier releases) that both Prereq and Requires(post) *does* make the Prereq'd item get installed first.
