That works for me.

Yeah.. this would require a more massive database than I think is in
the scope of packages. This sort of big brother would basically track
what is run, by what and when. It would then present stuff so that a
user could see what they are using the most.
However, in some cases, I would just like to know:
poppler-glib: used by evince, gimp.
That way I can say.. oh I used evince since the update.. and its
working so I have not had a problem.

The biggest query command I would like at the moment is something like:
fedora-easy-karma --list # lists packages to be voted on.
fedora-easy-karma --list-new # list pacakges I haven't voted on already.
I removed a couple hundred packages from my system today because I am
not suing them and even just hitting return to go past them was taking
a long time.

Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp. Or what's a heaven for?
