The package behaves just like pear install would, with the exception of the
removed libraries. 
The problems and advantages are the same as with other libraries. You will have
one single install of symfony for all your websites and you will need to check
that these still work after a symfony upgrade (or a Doctrine/YAML/... upgrade). 

I would expect that this is mostly useful for either development or for people
who would like to deploy symfony onto multiple machines by RPM. Advanced users
probably include symfony with all plugins and pear packages in their revision
control repository. 

It is easy to switch a project to a bundled symfony, even if you set it up with
the RPM.
