Well, I did use pkcon, just because it is easier to document it 
in news, obviously I tried first with pk-application and 
I couldn't do it. Really, if I can remove just packages where 
nothing depends on them (and I have no way how to find out what 
depends on them) and the rest has to be done with yum (or pirut), 
then PK is almost useless, right?
