While testing this new functionality with pk-application on my 
x86_64 office computer -- there are many stupid packages 
installed on my computer, and then I found avahi-qt3 (I have no 
idea, why I have installed, probably some dependency of some 
-devel package).  I clicked ``Remove'' and I got again that silly 
``something depends on it'' error message.  I thought that this 
is some kind of problem with your code, but then I run yum remove 
avahi-qt3 and I got this:

[matej at hubmaier ~]$ sudo yum remove avahi-qt3

So, apparently there is something with multilib that PK cannot 
do. Although, on the other hand, it looks like PK knows about 
%arch because both pkcon and pk-application show architecture of 
the packages and they show both i386 and x86_64 packages of 
avahi-qt3, but apparently there is some problem with removing it.

Any ideas?
