Howdy,
    Well, actually, yes, in a way.  The other confusion was what, exactly, I 
needed to put into the package.keywords file.  Depend atoms can apparently 
be of several somewhat specific formats, and I wasn't sure which applied in 
that case.  I'm refering to the ability to specify specific versions, 
specific versions or greater, etc.
Thanks,
Zack.
