Heh.. I think this is actually pretty amusing: apt will refuse to do
anything if you have unrelated unsatisfied dep in your rpmdb (one of the
top three complaints about apt and I agree there should be a switch to
turn that off temporarily) but doesn't care about unsatisfied unrelated
deps in repositories, with yum the situation is exactly the opposite :)
