Ok, speaking of dependencies...

We have some components which can accept the name of a component to 
lookup  and use.  For instance in the config, a Role or shorthand is 
provided and the component looks that up directly.  How does that fit in 
with the explicit declaration of dependencies?  I'll have to dig up an 
example later if I haven't made it clear enough yet.
