Program for cleaning packages

Hi, do you know if there exists a program, able to show you which packages you haven't used for a long time and no other more recently used programs depends on?

If not, wouldn't it be able to create one, just looping through the files of each installed rpm, checking last opened date with ls, or so?

package management in fedora core 4 should be handled using's much nicer than through rpm commands

have a looksie here....

I guess you can use ls to find dates when the application was used....should be a better way...maybe some log file including dates (use grep to scan through?)?
