Do you have any other suggestions on how to programattically decide what 
choice out of many options you'd use to satisfy a dep?


All of these virtually provide /usr/bin/whizbang  and use alternatives to 
handle this.

bingo requires /usr/bin/whizbang, and doesn't care which one.  What way to you 
decide which to grab?  Currently yum does a sort of all that 
provide /usr/bin/whizbang and picks the one at the top.  Shorter names sort 
before longer ones, so in this case, 'go' wins.
