Note that similar strategy is used throughout all of the

This helps to futureproof everything as much as possible,
and while in a perfect world the packaging of things
shouldn't really change much, nobody's planned on it
changing and it has changed 4-5 times over the last
2-3 years, so using virtual provides/requires for this
stuff now, helps to save everyone headaches in the
future.

Could we have a page in fedoraproject.org with a list of those virtual
dependencies? it would really save a lot of time when packaging
