I'd personally say that we should start to use this immediately. I'd say
that wrong dependencies happens quite often in Fedora, this cannot make
For example, there happens quite often that JRuby is pulled in instead
of expected Ruby MRI. In this case "Recommends: ruby" should be more
appropriate dependency then "Require: ruby", because for somebody, JRuby
might be preferred. But we'd like to give a hint to the resolver what is
preferred by package maintainer.
