Well, just thought about it, it could be similar to the depend()
function, just print out the dependcies in one line without versions,
so I could copy and paste it, that would be sufficient (for the
beginning), ideally it could be done in the depend() function as well,
since we already have the data, so why not provide different formats?
I'll see if I get it scribbled.
