The discussion I've heard so far is to work in the direction of having:
 1. only one set of the metadata in any format
 2. a single depsolver, slightly differently handled and subclassed
 3. anaconda support some subset of that functionality.

So how do we get there? I think that's a question best answered by
Jeremy and other anaconda hackers. :)
