Can you give a general procedure to decide that a program has no bugs?
We don't even have a general procedure for *binary* dependencies (yes, we
have the dpkg-shlibdep procedure, but this does not cover all
dependencies), but we have a bug tracking system so if we miss some
dependency, sooner or later we (or some user) should discover it.
I don't see great difference between source and binary dependencies.
So I don't see the need to use any other word than "Depends:".
