Na, it only becomes dangerous, when you set it to "auto pilot" - like
"yum -y remove glibc". 

Otherwise yum spits out a set of packages it will remove. Yes, I'd like
to think of users as being halfway smart. And able to learn, so that
they only do it once.

Removing them one by one with rpm makes you use "--force" or "--nodeps"
