Good idea. I've now added versioned dependencies to a few more places.

However, while testing this, I noticed that COPR repo metadata includes
all older versions of packages ever built in the COPR. This
unfortunately means that DNF is free to pick older packages to satisfy
dependencies if it can't work out a transaction with the latest version.

For example, gtk3-3.12.0-2 now has a versioned dep on glib2(x86-64) >=
2.40.0, but that doesn't help much if DNF ends up pulling in
gtk3-3.12.0-1 instead :(
