I'm assuming that if I use repoclosure with the system's yum
configuration, it tells me what it can't resolve just like when I would
yum install the package with missing dependencies -so correct me if I'm
wrong to assume that:

A random example from repoclosure:

# repoclosure -c /etc/yum.conf -a i386 -n
[...snip...]
package: dkms - 2.0.16-1.fc7.noarch from fedora
  unresolved deps:
     kernel-devel
[...snip...]

# yum install dkms
[...snip...]
Installing:
 dkms               noarch     2.0.16-1.fc7     fedora             84 k
Installing for dependencies:
 kernel-devel       i686       2.6.22.1-41.fc7  updates           4.7 M
[...snip...]

I'm not sure where it differs, but apparently repoclosure does some
things different from yum, as I'm sure this ugly depchecker does too.
