Oh, it does both:
perl(DBI) >= 1.57
perl-DBI >= 1.57

My point is that as I have priorities-checking on it should try to resolve 
the dependency, should fail (because that required package is excluded by 
priorities) and thus not upgrade both packages. However, it does. Both.
I would consider this a bug in yum or yum-utils. Correct?

Btw, sorry for starting this thread here. Obviously this fits better in 
the users list which I subscribed to now.
