[Mageia-dev] An idea for improve URPMI ;)

I guess what current Mandriva downloads and installs by "dependency groups", eg:
if a package A must be updated and A depends of B and C, what will be updated
too, URPMI downloads B, C and A and install them. (Someone to packaging team can
explain better?) I'm asking if is possible "force" or "make" URPMI create this
"groups", elect the smaller one and download it, from the smaller to bigger
package, install it and download the second smaller package group in this same

Of course, it won't install a group with incomplete dependences.
