Well, people are proposing 2 behaviors: 1. treat as hard dependencies by
default or 2. ignore by default. Why not have both? In fact that's what
Debian is doing: Recommends is 1., Suggests is 2., and of course the
default can be changed (you can choose to drag everything in or to ignore
even Recommends). So why don't we do the same in RPM and Yum?
