I didn't notice that!  (Guess nobody's using it yet.
Can you give an example of an entry that uses the "depends on" input?)

But the key part of the suggestion was that the "depends on"
thing should be fully parsed as a set of links to other entries
in the database, and that libraries should list all the packages 
that depend on them.
Do you do that yet?
