rpm, yum and inconsistent dependencies



  just an observation -- i wanted to remove the mysql-related packages
from my f8t1 system and, before i did that, i decided to check for
dependencies.  one of the commands i ran:

# rpm -q --whatrequires mysql-libs
mysql-5.0.45-4.fc8
#

  however, i also noticed this:

# rpm -qR amarok
...
libmysqlclient.so.15
libmysqlclient.so.15(libmysqlclient_15)
...

  but "mysql-libs" *is* the package that supplies that shared library.
shouldn't the rpm dependencies query be able to figure that out?

rday

p.s.  i posted this to the regular fedora list since i just assumed
the same would be true under f7.  was that a bad assumption?
