   If filesystems worked like this we'd be in a right pickle - this
sounds wrong to me ... simplest to implement but wrong.

   It should track dependencies - by use ref counting or whatever ...
the database / dependency graph should be global not local to each package.

   May be normal, but really is not optimal.

   The ideas behind this are similar to filesystems and SCM tools like
git - a lot of work has alrady gone into these kind of issues ... would
git make a good backend to rpm/yum I wonder ...
