Like... if I do a yum remove of cyrus-imapd.i386 and cyrus-sasl.i386 it
wants to take 205 additional packages with it on the "deep 6" ride. Most
are not what I would have guessed had any affiliation. Printre config,
KDE stuff, Gnome stuff...

Anyway, I decided that I'd leave those two and just remove the devel and
other stuff *very* carefully.

It's hell when you decide to learn this stuff and do a full-blown
install so you'll have what you need when you needed it and then can't
get rid of what you (think) you don't need when you don't.. well, joking
of course.
