When I last checked, it reported on the order of 2400 dependent package

Yes, that's exactly the purpose of this patch set.  Although at present,
the only user of 'imagemagick/stable' is 'dblatex/stable', and the only
user of 'dblatex/stable' is 'gtk-doc/stable'.

Good idea.  I added comments similar to what you had suggested.

Thanks for the review!  I went ahead and pushed a revised version of
these commits to 'master', starting with commit
7c2b840d6c586f80fe22a862ce4e362c997559a5, but if anyone has further
input on this approach, it's still not too late to change things.
