If rpm/yum/apt ever started to support it, then that would be the
greatest thing ever.
Well, it would be a random accident if your constructs would
rpm's "then syntax".
E.g. openSUSE's rpm has such constructs, but they are using a different
*spec-syntax. They have "Recommends:, Supplements:, Enhances:,
Suggests:", not Requires(hint).
Too bad that wont ever happen.
You can never be sure. openSUSE
claims to be supporting them.
Whether these are useful is a different matter.
