After you have a working infrastructure, you can decide the default
behavior.

  # yum remove a) b)
  Packages to be removed:
  a)
  b)
  Proceed:(y/n) y
  2 packages removed.
  # yum list --unused-deps
  The following packages were installed for dependencies but are
  currently not needed (use 'remove --unused-deps' to remove them):
  c)
  d)
  # yum remove --unused-deps
  Packages to be removed (unused deps):
  c)
  d)
  Proceed:(y/n) y
  2 packages removed.
