How often does this problem really occur? I just checked core's x86_64
packages and there are exactly 12 files in such dependencies
affecting 18 packages out of 2422 (that's 0.7%):

  cman-kernel dlm-kernel gamin-python gdm GFS-kernel gnbd-kernel httpd
  ImageMagick-perl inn libvirt-python libxml2-python libxslt-python
  openldap-servers openmotif openssh-server python-lcms redhat-lsb

That's 0.7%. I thought that the problem was much larger. I either
miscalculated the number of file dependencies or there is no problem :)

(At least not one that has to be solved by creating new guidelines,
most of these packages like lsb or kernel modules seem to need special
handling anyway)
