Don't forget the "dewey" depends, i.e. "foo<3.7" etc.
I'don't know if we need all these wildcards soon, but the pkg system will
include full wildcard support soon, and then we may move to even more
wildcards, possible some that are more complicated then "foo-*".

(maybe we could/should add a userlevel call to pkg_admin or so to make 
the pkg_* pmatch() function accessible for shell tools: 
pkg_admin pmatch 'foo-17.42' 'foo-17.*'; shouldn't be too hard)
