In the old days I used to remove the problem package and note what else
got dragged along (and checked that enough was left to still have
a functioning system) and put it back later.

But now you can handle some of these cases using yum-shell. You can do
additions and removals in the same transaction. This comes in handy when
someone forgets to add an obsoletes so that new packages don't trigger
the removal of conflicting packages that aren't needed any more. I can't
promise it will handle all cases, but it might work here.
