rpm 5, from version at least 4.4.6 seems, seem to offer all new types of
dependencies resolution, but there is not or little information about it:
The notes in the changelog do not illustrate at full the potentialities or
at least the functionality. For example dependency name space, macro
expanded dependency tokens, boolean valued  dependency functions.... ( iirc
from a mail of some year ago )

Certainly, also the order of the dependencies is changed from the legacy rpm
(think to erasure ordering)

It is possible to have some information in more on these topics? Someone use
it already ?
To me they seem too much interesting.

Thanks in advance
