This is entirely correct.  Like many, I have been in dependency hell
because of repo mistakes.  Please create a more direct way for new users to
protect themselves. We used to caution people, but that's insufficient now.
It should be in the base install.  I'd say it should be centos priority 1.

Base redhat leaves out too many programs.. epel no longer sufficient, users
forced to quilt things together. It is a tough problem for me (experienced
user).  It drives all the young folks to Ubuntu.  that's bad because they
then don't understand the redhat systems at work.
