I want the mathml-fonts fonts installed.
I know that "yum install abiword" which I also want will grab them as a
dependency.

But suppose I decide that I'm not using AbiWord anymore because I'm
doing everything in LaTeX. So I remove AbiWord.

mathml-fonts I still want though - but it was installed as a dependency
to abiword, which I have since removed.

Does that mean mathml-fonts will get automatically removed out from
under me?
