1. let's not add more items to rpm's interface.
2. yum doesn't have an 'uninstall' option - it is remove or erase
3. yum-utils contains package-cleanup.
     'package-cleanup --leaves --all' lists all programs that nothing
depend on
     'package-cleanup --leaves' lists all libraries (or as close as it
can guess) that nothing depends on.
