virtual package is weird here. ;-)
but could be resolve by a some-virtula.pkg-gz ;-)
and the tree view of dependency tree, like in console-apt, that means,
[see my another semi-final mail.. ;-)] in general, if you wanna an tree-view
of the whole tree, you will need to download the whole tree anyway, and my
approach won't prevent you do that. ;-)
