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?

I can't wait to see how we depsolve through:

yum update:

- foo is updated and recommends bar
- bar conflicts with baz which is also in the update

but I'm sure we'll muddle through - provided this is included in upstream rpm.
