My idea was meant for dist updates (FC6->F7) only and crazy enough for
that scenario already, as uninstalling packages behind the users back
without asking them is not nice (tm). The idea for that reasons was
rejected yesterday by FESCo. That fine for me as long as a proper
solution for the problem at hand comes up (hopefully soon, but I doubt it).
Back to EPEL: Removing packages behind the users back without asking
them in a stable dist is just insane afaics. It might be a last resort
in some very very rare cases, but that should be avoided at all costs.
So no, that doesn't work.
