Description Ville Skyttä 2005-08-09 11:30:30 EDT

For example my local mod_tidy package.  
But that's not the point, there's no way we can know what refers to it outside

If you insist on getting rid of libtidy*, do it after a transition period,  
IMO in FC-6 it would be ok'ish to drop the Provides.
