Fortunately, since moving from RedHat 9 to Debian a few years ago, 
dependency hell has been a rare thing, and when it does happen it's 
generally easy to fix.  Back in the RedHat days, though...  The day my 
distaste for RPM's reached its peak was the day I had to download a 
package from CPAN to satisfy an RPM dependency.  I have had no desire to 
run an RPM-based distrobution since then.  Ich.  Just thinking about it 
gives me chills.
