Sort of, in a very limited way. You'll get a version compatibility
error if you depend on say, Plone<3 and your dependency depends on
Plone>=3.1, for example. But there's no backtracking to resolve
this, so the minute it happens your installation is basically dead
until you get rid of the problematic package.
