Package perl-XML-Writer is not Required by anything on Satellite 5.3.0, we might want to not ship it

Description of problem:
Package perl-XML-Writer is not Required by anything on Satellite 5.3.0, we might want to not ship it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20090323.0 on i386
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Satellite 5.3.0.
2. Run rpm -q perl-XML-Writer, check that package perl-XML-Writer is installed.
3. Run rpm -e perl-XML-Writer.
4. Run rpm -q perl-XML-Writer again, check that it's now been removed.
Package perl-XML-Writer is installed but it is not required by anything in the Satellite, so it can safely be removed.
Either the package should be Required by some other package, or it should not be on the compose.
I am not able to find anything on 5.2 Satellite that used this perl module (so far).
Justin, please look and confirm that this can be removed.
[jlsherri@quartet spacewalk]$ git grep "XML::Writer"
Nope, not used it doesn't look like.
Reassigning to dgilmore and opening a releng ticket
removed from 20090401
# rpm -q perl-XML-Writer
package perl-XML-Writer is not installed
Moving to VERIFIED, tested on 530-re20090403.2.
