Full optdep support with all the bells and whistles
This should implement everything that's listed on this page:
I know that this is probably 4.1 material and will most likely need
quite a bit of polish, but I'd like to gather some comments now

If you like, you can also get the code at https://github.com/moben/pacman
on the optdep branch.
Please take a look and comment.
