Installed packages dependency logging - dep

Something I have just encountered in Salix is that there is no installed packages dependency logging. That is to say if dependent packages are installed as a result of installing a parent package, when that parent is then removed there is no facility to also remove the dependent children packages.

Does anyone know if CentOS is the same or does that have some method of cleaning up orphaned dependents?

CentOS uses yum; In fedora, I can clean up orphans by performing the following:
package-cleanup --orphans
Package-cleanup is part of the yum-utils package, and will work under CentOS. Also check out the man page for further options.
