Ok, let me clarify.  A plain Requires: doesn't guarantee that the Required 
package will be installed before the package Requiring it.  It just means it 
either needs to be there before hand, or in the same transaction.  Things 
like %post/%pre requires and PreReq help rpm in ordering the transaction to 
make sure the the things that are needed at install time are actually there, 
vs things needed at runtime.
