About this whole proposal:
I didn't really understand what the point of changing the complete syntax
for our version specifier is. If it's just to allow ranges, then maybe
that could be done within the current scheme, instead of changing
everything and its mother.
May I suggest that this be deferred for now, and be part of some re-design
of the pkg_install tools'n'stuff that's gonna happen for Summer-of-Code?
We'll be happy to have a look at a complete design specification, instead
of random updates to random places "because you feel bored". :-)
