Is there still no effort in PHP to standardize on an official dep?  Do we
have anyone close enough with upstream to try to standardize on anything?

Otherwise that seems fine.  I'm not sure about [Apache].  We'd want to get
careful there since we're inventing this from scratch we might want to
figure out how to make that more general so other cartridges could use it
(ruby for example).  deplist.txt doesn't feel like the right place for it.
