Since our software is to be consumed by packages, shouldn't the packages 
project consider itself to be responsible for global requirements? I.e. 
checking, if requirements are packageable, if versions fit, etc.

In some distros, there are multiple versions of the same package 
allowed, in others, it's forbidden.
