Yes, and (correct me if I'm wrong), but I don't think there's any prospect of it becoming supported. Since it's virtual, each package providing it will have a different version number, so it makes no sense to have one in the dependency. If you need a versioned depdendency, you need to depend upon a real package, or set of alternative packages perhaps with each having a version requirement. Does apt even support this?
