I'm still lost.  What are you *doing* with the requires, provides, and 
obsoletes fields, other than storing or outputting them?  There's nothing 
in the doc or the source linked above that actually *does* anything with 
the data that I can see.  How do you use this to find and install 
dependencies, for example?
