There are several packages that use the soname approach in FC and they
are the ones that are a PITA to cleanup now and then

I did not know, is it possible to have a tool find the rpms that no rpms depend on, and ask to remove them ? For this task, Debian has something called deborphan (which might do more than that) and Mandrake has "urpm-find-leaves" IIRC. Maybe that could be a start.

Check out this for example: http://lists.freshrpms.net/pipermail/freshrpms-list/2003-March/003391.html
