At least the laws of thermodynamics are written down ...

It seriously was not obvious to me that a broken dependency in some
out-of-the-way package, in an older version of Fedora, that I added to
*help Fedora users*, would be a problem.

Someone could easily do the same thing in future.  If broken
dependencies are so unacceptable, then it should be added to the
packaging guidelines.
