Another issue related to the perl-devel split out:
The files having been contained in "perl < *-14", now are

IMO, perl-devel >= *-14 therefore should

to guarantee an update/upgrade without functional regressions.
Unfortunately: Such a change has dramatic effects on yum: It causes yum
to iterate through all perl(...) deps.
This doesn't seem right to me anyway. perl-devel doesn't obsolete older
versions of perl since it doesn't replace their functionality.
perl+perl-devel does 'obsolete' older versions of perl, but rpm can't
really express that.
