Hi Steve, ...

It seems to me that this is the kind of problems, that we faced with the
ocaml packages since years. On the pure dependency, this was achieved
with the abi provides, but for the ocaml package alone. 

Maybe something similar could be achieved for the other packages,
generated in a semi-automated way, or maybe an abi-field or something
should be added.

Ralf, you are involved with the EDOS folk, which if i remember well,
this kind of stuff has been one of the topics they where involved with.
