Adding those or not is the same as adding versioned deps or not.  Both

Not directly after, but in the same transaction.   That is the same as 
the current issue we have.  Using sodeps is no improvement over 
versioned deps here.

Sorry, after looking at the patch in more detail, I see you have dealt 
with these.  I will try and give these a full review as soon as I have 
fixed a couple of bigger issues in makepkg-git.
