I'd also like support for tuple provides, to expose font font facets to
the software updater.

For example, a font file can provide a 'bold' variant with support for a
list of locales.

Right now if I ask rpm to install a bold sans-serif font for russian for
example, it will happily install a package with an italic serif russian
font, a bold japanese font and some other unrelated sans-serif stuff.
There is no way to tell it I want both properties in the same provides.

(I'm sure there are other use cases)
