I'd love to be able to just add several "Package-Requires" lists, as this would be most visually appealing and easiest to read. At any rate - something has to be done about long dependency lists, as they look quite ridiculous right now.

It's a commented-out sexp, but it's still a sexp, and it has to be a valid one.

Package.el will signal an error during installation if it's not a
valid sexp. The error itself will depend on what the problem is.
Here's what you get if you miss a closing paren for instance:
    package-read-from-string: End of file during parsing
