Especially in the situation we have broken dependencies (because we 
don't have Suggests/Recommends, but that's another issue, which I don't 
want to open now) we don't have quality uninstall á la aptitude ("remove 
this package and all packages which were installed just to satisfy its 
requirements recursively") yum history undo is priceless in the 
situation when you want to try a package just to find out it brings 50MB 
of random crap.
