A quick way to actually check for such dependencies is to switch to

That's not all that quick. There ought to be a tool for this. Given a package
name it should print the dependency tree for that package. It could have an
option to suppress packages in the base set. Couldn't Yum be taught to answer
that kind of queries?

 There is already:

...obviously any random custom behaviour (like ignoring packages in
@base) is possible, someone just has to write it.

Is there a reason this tool is not part of yum-utils?



cleanup + merging it with other tools and other delays.
