we include both pyOpenSSL (used by rhnlib) and m2crypto. If rhnlib goes away,
is there anything else requiring pyOpenSSL?

These have been discussed already - python-docs should stay, it used to be a
subpackage of the main python package, but I split it out to get rid of the
annoying BuildRequires of tetex.
