This is interesting.  In my mind I've been thinking of globs as broken
because they pull in everything.  Then I start using them when I remove
something and it works as I expect!  Woohoo!  Next time I use it to
install something and it's still "broken"....

Now that we've had this discussion I realize this isn't broken but a
design decision.  But even though I now realize it is consistent, I
still think it is unexpected.

Here's why:
yum install vim*
installs vim-common.x86_64 vim-enhanced.x86_64 vim-minimal.x86_64

yum install xfsprogs*
installs xfsprogs.x86_64 xfsprogs.i386 xfsprogs-devel.x86_64
xfsprogs-devel.i386

Why should xfsprogs install i386 packages when vim doesn't?
