It would be a shame to lose gnome-games, every computer needs easy 
access to solitaire.

How about dropping some of the random documentation rpms we keep around, 
they don't follow a pattern anyway (ie we have exim-doc but no 
postfix-doc, we have python-doc but no php-doc or perl-doc)

exim-doc 3.2m
python-docs 2.4m
python-twisted-docs 6.4m
postgresql-docs 4.6m
(there are a couple more)

Or even better drop tetex-doc 51M (im pretty sure the php manual package 
got dropped long before it got that big)
