Hi Darix

Thanks for the offer, however I only used the ruby dependency as an example
(the package group in question anyway is mostly C++ and java, with a little
ruby tacked onto the web interface). I have exactly the same issue with
another package (slony-I sql replicator) which requires the latest Postgresql
which only comes with SUSE 10.1 and a similar issue with needing java 1.5.0
which doesn't come with SUSE 9.3 for another package. I am sure I will find
more example as I continue adding packages to the system.

This is something that should be solved in a more general way if possible..
