I think I'm looking for an alpm_find_satisifier equivalent rather than
a pacman -Ss equalviant,
and that's why I'm proposing a new type=provides.

For type=info after thinking again, is it
a) The dependencies providers' details are listed in the "Depends"
"MakeDepends" "OptDepends"
b) The "results" items are unchanged, but querying a name not only
returns the package name that matches,
but also their provides array matches. That is
?type=info&arg[]=java-environment would return
resultcount > 1
or something else?

I think b) would work for me, I will just have to verify the version
afterwards with vercmp in that case.
