Subject: RE: DOCBOOK: tagging package names (rpm, deb)

And now that we are at it, what would be the preferred way to mark up the
dependencies between packages and other resources in a computable way, i.e.,
in a way that could be derived from a package description, or, even better,
could generate a package description? 

Kind regards
Peter Ring

So is a command (usually), but it has semantics that allow it to be
distinguished from its hum-drum existence as a mere file. At least that's
the way I'm thinking about packages...

They're files, all right. But they're very special files. Besides,
I can't let you get away with that answer, it's too easy. :-)
