As Michael pointed out, this has absolutely nothing to do with Yum. The
packages were specified with certain dependencies and Yum is simply
following the spec. I'm sure you're not suggesting that Yum should
examine the packages and determine if X *really* depends on Y ...

BTW, if possible don't use Yahoo to reply. Its idea of message threading
(not to mention quoting) seems to be completely broken.
