hope you like the idea :)

It seems that this is an idea that users dream of. ;)

Quite some time ago (I'd say this year though), the same was discussed
on the yum devel list. Could be interesting to read there. From
superficial memory, it seemed not easy to solve.

There is one from 2005:

But from this year I only found
http://lists.baseurl.org/pipermail/yum/2008-March/021757.html

The rollback isn't exactly the same that apt-get's autoremove, but
neverless it's something interesting. What happened with rpm
--rollback function? http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/7034

AFAIK rollback code was removed from rpm-4.6 because it was not
mature enough and nobody used it. rpm-5 still has it, though.

(openSUSE 11.1 comes with rpm-4.4.3.2, so it still supports
rollbacks)

Cheers,
Michael.
