Subject debian-like virtual modules
Date Tue, 07 Apr 2009 11:43:33 GMT

is there a (plan for a) feature of debian-like virtual modules? for example 
module A depends on the virtual module B. if i want to resolve dependencies of 
the module A then ivy looks for for a non-virtual module that "implements" 
virtual module B. there can be of course multiple modules implementing the B. 
in such a case the ivy should decide which non-virtual module to use by 
checking some priority attribute.

the real example in debian is: package mutt depends on the virtual package 
mail-transport-agent. the mail-transport-agent are courier, exim4, sendmail. 
so if i want to install the mutt, i must have installed one of the 
forementioned packages.

is there some way?

thanks in advance
best regards
