Hi Andreas,

I extended the queries to allow multiple (and even versionized) provides.

.... and replaces it, as seen from the other task. In principle, this
could be implemented in blend-gen-control (even independent of whether
APT or UDD is used); blends.py's uddcache would just need an extension
to return the "replaces" as well.

I would however leave this for future.

This is a bit more difficult; and I would leave this out of the normal
package.
