Ah, yeah, I got confused when grepping around in the release notes page
because it contains multiple almost identical sections. Hopefully I got
all the other dependencies from the right section.

Requiring 4.0 changes things significantly, because perl-DBD-mysql is
coming from the base RHEL package set not the EPEL package set.

Once we start replacing RHEL packages, then I'm not sure involving
protectbase or priorities has much point. We could just simplify my
proposal to:

 epel.repo:     exclude = perl-*
 rpmforge.repo: includepkgs = perl-*

Ah. That's a pretty annoying dependency, since we can't just --nodeps a
package we pull in through the machine's puppet configuration. We might
need to create a local package that dummy-provided perl(DBD::Oracle).

What exactly is the "Mail Queueing" feature that TheSchwartz is used
