I have been thinking about optdepends and if we can improve the handling 
of them.  So, given I am better at making wiki pages than patches...


What do people think about this idea?  Are there other sensible 
additions to that proposal?

I know that optdepends were originally for getting rid of informational 
messages but I have some packages on my system that are installed 
"explicitly" when they are really (opt)deps for other packages.
