I haven't had problems with that but then I have very little experience
with package.el. Last week I installed org-ehtml from melpa but the
installation failed because org-mode was too old (this was on an
otherwise pristine 24.4 installation.) Easily fixed by updating org
first but it seems there's no dependency handling which seems really
rather odd.
