No offense but that seems misguided. Under many circumstances, that requires installing and then deleting packages that one doesn't need or want. In other circumstances I have to delete RPMs from the database to prevent them from being "upgraded." This complicates things considerably. I hate to say this but SOMEONE "FIXED" WHAT WEREN'T BROKEN. I cannot fathom what POSSIBLE benefit accrues to anyone by eliminating this feature.
