And, while we're at it, do we *really* have to create such a detailed
dependency view?  Wouldn't it be much less confusing if we just list the
packages which have to be installed to satisfy all dependencies, just
like the GNOME PackageKit Updater GUI, gpk-update-viewer?  Like this:

  <bold>The following packages are required to satisfy dependencies.</bold>

  libao 1.0.0-1
  libao-devel 1.0.0-1
  libao4 1.0.0-1
  libaudio2 1.9.2-1
  libaudiofile0 0.2.7-1
  libesd0 0.2.41-10
  libFLAC8 1.2.1-2

  libkate1 0.3.7-3
  libogg0 1.2.0-1
  libspeex1 1.2rc1-1
  libvorbis 1.3.1-1
  libvorbis0 1.3.1-1
