Are you suggesting using Packages files to test dependencies (I'd
rather hoped the database could be used for that)? Just to be clear:
* foo_1 depends on bar (= 4) and is in Incoming.
* gak_2 provides bar (>= 3) and is in the database.
(versioned provides, say). So to test that foo's dependency is
satisfied I need to...
I concede your point about not needing dependencies in the database,
tho. Muddled thinking on my part.
