Yes, but I hope, this is the first step only. Because in the current
state of the db backend this is totally useless, because you _must_
read the whole local repo with INFRQ_DEPENDS in almost all cases (in
usual cases), and the whole sync repos with many cases. That's why I
don't stop saying: .providers, .brokendeps, .groups are musthave. (Or
any of your solutions to stop this terrible practice.)
