Has someone a g-b-s function handy that creates a setup.hint template from the packagename and the depend(encies) output?

I doubt it.  Care to write one?  In fact, perhaps we should add a
setup.hint template file ("generic-setup.hint"?), and use that
instead of embedding the setup.hint contents into the g-b-s...

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?

requires is already in my patch I posted last week.

You mean, that big one with lots of stuff in it? Any plans to split it?

plans: sure. time: not yet.

postgresql and phpwiki need all my attention right now.
