Sure. All I was addressing was whether or not you can get dependency
info out of rpm. You can. I've been fending off the apt-is-better argument
for some time now on that one tiny thing. RPM has plenty wrong with it, but,
you know, that's a different argument. At least credit it with things it
Which is an entirely other argument, as I say, and one I don't really want
to get into. I know what works for me, and that's fine.
