anaconda is also running outside of the system you're trying to update -
it doesn't have to worry about making its own environment entirely
unusable. So it can do things like --nodeps w/o a concern for not being
able to complete the transaction.

It also means that we can do things like use a newer version of rpm or a
new kernel with ext4 support to (eventually) allow for migrating from
ext3->ext4
OK, thanks Seth and Jeremy for that insight.

Cheers,
