Ignore that :-)  On examination of the list it is clear that most are livna 
packages anyway, so I'll let them go and install afresh from freshrpms.

One thing makes me curious, though.  Amongst the listed dependency removals is 
mjpegtools.  As far as I know it does not depend on ffmpeg but can use it.  
Am I wrong, or is it that it's not just dependencies but anything that uses 
the package that gets removed?
