Isn't Hell supposed to be filled with the odor of hydrogen sulphide?
<inane cackles> Gee! I can't wait to install this one. 

Dependency Hell takes on a new meaning now that we have Smell-O-Rama. Do
we have new modules in upcoming kernels like fart.ko? If I hit tab to

that stinks? If yum fails to complete? I hazard to guess the result, but
I bet it'll be a doozy. 

<POOT! POOT!>
