Oh, I see, what I did is pretty bad : I directly modified (sorted) the requiredby
fields from each package.. Without updating the head of the list stored in
pkg->requiredby. I don't think it's possible to edit pkg->requiredby anyway,
but that might be a good thing.

So the list should probably be copied first, before sorting it, right?
