Subject Virtual dependencies
Date Sun, 03 Apr 2011 17:45:43 GMT

Hi, is it possible to define a dependency that can be satisfied by any one of
several modules?
Specifically, the dependency would refer to certain functionality required
by the current module, and other modules would declare that they
satisfy/implement that functionality.
The concept is similar to "virtual packages" in various Linux distros.
This "virtual dependency" would not refer to any specific piece of code,
except it could default to one implementation if no other module that
satisfies the dependency is pulled through the other dependencies.
