'yum provides foo.h' provides the package(s) which contain foo.h.
Would it be feasible, or even a good idea to add a similar reverse
functionality to the 'yum info' options for a package such that 'yum
info files httpd' or 'yum fileinfo httpd' (or anything else that might
make better sense) would provide a list of all files within the httpd
rpm? Mostly, I'm thinking that adding rpm -ql  functionality to yum
might be a beneficial thing.
