RFE: Put fedora on a diet

There was a thread a few days ago about the minimum size of fedora and
the number of dependencies that the packages do have today.

Since seems to be too late for FC4, perhaps as a suggestion for FC5,
please consider breaking the packages into smaller pieces so when we
need package X it does not forces us to download a dozen of extra
packages just to conform to it's dependencies.

We can reduce the minimum hw necessary (good news for 3rd world/legacy
hw) and ease admins' lifes (less packages to configure/worry).
