Perhaps I did not understand the question about traversing,
but I'd build a hash with correspondences:

    key:"feature provided" --> value:"list of packages that provide it"

foe all available packages.

This hash would then be interrogated to find suitable candidates
for a dependency, when the need arises.  But I suspect this
is already implemented and it's still slow... :)
