The dictionary entry for Dependency could explain the different types
of dependencies -- explicit module vs provider.

I'm struggling with what exactly to declare for provider-type
dependencies.  List the group, which links to a section of some
provider overview page that shows the bundled implementers of that
group?  Or just explicitly list the bundled modules?

It might save some time when planning a highly-customized build to
look at a table or chart or ???.  (better for the wiki perhaps)
