i was hoping for jonas to say something on this :-)

is it not?...

that was my original idea.
then i discovered that cdbs can already do it, and so i just hooked to
that: "cdbs:Depends" should get updated to depend on "pd" (if you
included  .../pd.mk) or "puredata" (if you included .../puredata.mk)

at least this seems to work with the pd-syslog example.

however, i'm quite open to go back to "pd:Depends" as well...

oh, you mean not binary dependencies (as are generated by
dpkg-shlibdeps), but simply if an object.pd references [pddp/link] it
would automatically depend on pd-pddp?

that would be a cool feature indeed, though not easily done.
