Re: dpkg and dependencies - manual update

Thanks, Guy, for clarifying that issue.  I've added the following to
the programmers' manual:
> When selecting which level of dependency to use you should consider
> how important the depended-on package is to the functionality of the
> one declaring the dependency.  Some packages are composed of
> components of varying degrees of importance.  Such a package should
> list using <tt/Depends/ the package(s) which are required by the more
> important components.  The other components' requirements may be
> mentioned as Suggestions or Recommendations, as appropriate to the
> components' relative importance.
