 Then it should not say "valid candidate".

 Oh... *that*'s what 4. means.  Ok, now I get it.  Is there *any* way to
 get this information on the report?  (Something like "tried to install,
 failed because of dependencies" or something along those lines?)

 Yes.  In principle, yes.  I'm left with this:

 tried: foo (0) 40 a-40
 tried: foo (0) 40 a-40
 The List
 foo: alpha: bar
 baz: alpha: bar baz
 xyz: alpha: bar baz

 I'm not interested in getting a particular package *in*, I'm interested
 in getting useful info *out* of the report (and having the method to do
 that documented somewhere)
