Another parallel example: sendmail, postfix, and exim all provide
smtpdaemon, but "yum install smtpdaemon" doesn't install all of those.

And "yum remove smtpdaemon" *does* try to remove all matches. Okay, this
isn't necessarily the best behavior, but it is what I expect from yum, and
it's inconsistent that arch doesn't work this way. And at least with arch,
we've got a decent way of guessing which one is "better" for installation.
