The upstream metadata do indeed contain incomplete dependecy
information. I'm not sure how upstream generates the metadata but it
makes sense to add dependencies present in STY files to the packages.

I'm not fan of adding a new texlive.prov/req to rpm. It is indeed a
general solution but it needs direct hacks and maintenance at rpm
side. We can take advantage of the fact that we actually have the
whole TeX distribution when packaging TeX Live so that I would rather
implement the STY dependency calculator to the TL package generator.

Maybe a good name for such deps would be tex-sty(foo) in order to
distinguish style dependencies from the others.

The versioning is tricky here as the description in the STY files is
available only in textual form with intention to parse it by brain and
not by script :)
