Much agreed. Dependencies are there for a reason. If you want to handle
dependencies manually and use --nodeps, it's assumed that you know what
you're doing, since you can break your system severely if you install
software without respecting their dependencies.
But using --nodeps should almost never be necessary, so if you think you
need it but you are not sure, think again.

Or use "up2date gnomemeeting" on a Red Hat system, or use apt-rpm, or
urpmi on a Mandrake system, etc... Basically every distribution these
days have a method of installing software and their dependencies
