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.
