    Oh, OK, that will work.  But that's equivalent to what XEmacs does.
    It tends toward centralization because it's most efficient if done in
    the context of a comprehensive list of packages, all available in a
    single repository.

We don't need to think about anything so complex.
If the list of dependencies are wrong, it is a bug and
the package maintainer fixes it.
