[CentOS] Trying to find packages that depend on package X.

Quick search in bout "man yum" and "man rpm" shows how to find what
package X depends upon, but not what depends upon package X. Of course,
we could get a deplist for everything but I'm *guessing* that take more
overhead and grep too.

"yum remove" tells us. Then we just have to remember to say "No, don't
remove". Am I missing something... like I missed that big Google box on
the archives?

Anyway, if I haven't overlooked something, I was thinking that this
might be a good enhancement request for yum's buglist. Do like remove
but skip making us reliably answer "no".

OK. Did I miss something? Is this a feature that others would find
handy? Should I get it on a yum bug list?
