The way it came to my attention was somebody trying to use pungi to respin 
Fedora.  Depsolving brought in all the -devel stuff.  Perhaps this is also a 
result of how pungi is doing the depsolving as it has to do it differently 
than one would do at install time.  (IE I can't rely on the metacity already 
in the transaction to satisfy a dep of something else as that user may not 
actually select metacity, I need to pull in all possible providers of a dep 
and have anaconda/yum sort it out at install time based on the packages 
selected then).
