One thing I had considered for PK was running through a large
"get-depends" output into the basename filter, so that the user only
sees the "applications[1]" by default, rather than a huge list.

Maybe one to play with.


[1] well, the 'main' package generated from the srpm -- play with the
basename filter in gpk-application for an example
