Does it support the following?

I have a set of binary packages installed. I want to install a new
(previously not installed) package, let's call it foo, without
disturbing my installation. foo depends on bar. bar-1.0 with is installed. The latest version of bar in pkgsrc is
bar-2.0 with

The server has binary packages for foo-4.0 (built against bar-1.0) and
foo-4.0nb1 (built against bar-2.0).

pkg_dry -i should install foo-4.0, even though it's not the absolutely
latest version, but it works with the bar-1.0 that's installed.

AFAIK, the pkg_summary file contains sufficient information for this

Alternatively, pkg_dry would have update bar and all its dependencies
to 2.0 first.
