Oh, and one other teeny, tiny, small little item...a list of all
shared libraries that package contains?  This is used to provide a
reverse mapping of .so.X to packages that use it.  Have a look at
http://opencsw.org/packages/CSWlibxml2-2/ for an example.

I'd be willing to drop this feature as knowing that the dependency
exists is enough for my tastes.  I don't need to see which packages
link to which specific shared object.  Others might find this useful
