Those of us who have a Debian-based worldview want to know: How 
do you make yum behave sensibly, ie behave like apt-get? If I 
type "apt-get update <whatever>" it automatically figures out 
all the dependencies and informs me of them. Why doesn't yum do 
this? What the heck is the advantage of yum over apt-get anyway, 
besides the cutesie name? Why do we use this brain-dead program?

Or is it possible to make yum handle dependencies properly?

Thank you. I feel better now.
