seems obvious to me that, in that case, bar should simply not be
installed (possibly yum could print a note of what happened).

btw, afaik, in both MDV's and SUSE's implementations of this,
rpm-the-command ignores Suggests: dependencies entirely. only the
distribution's own tools interpret them. as long as the hard Requires:
dependencies are met, rpm is happy.
