Sorry for the delayed response. My biggest piece of feedback that I
levied before and got some positive feedback on before is doing
s/so/lib/ on the naming so we can extend this in the future to non-so
library formats if desired.

How costly is the find_sodepends() bit, especially on packages with
thousands of files (sage-mathematics, game data, etc)? Unlike
soprovides this has to look at every single file.

After that I am good to merge these, although I'll wait for Allan's
return in case he has any final feedback.
