As much as I like yum, the thing about dependencies could
really frustrate some or a lot of users when they try to install
some favorite package/s of theirs, and the dependencies will
clash with the existing installations. Perhaps it is a bullet every
will have to bite ? :) :)
This will be especially true of older, no longer supported packages,
or packages from other BSD clones.
