pactree(8) and Optional Depends.

It would be nice if pactree(8) had an option to include optional
dependencies, i.e. treat them as dependencies.  I was trying to obtain
them as part of `pactree -s -r', but non-reverse would be useful too.
I'm not sure if they should be marked as optional in the output somehow,
e.g. a trailing ` ?', reminiscent of an extended regular expression's

Please keep me CC'd.

Cheers, Ralph.
