What about cases like the dbus-glib and glib:2 dependency, where it's
just too much trouble to use SLOT operator deps? Wouldn't it be better
to have a little flexibility, so that we can accommodate more packages?

As a workaround for SLOT operator deps, I suppose that glib:1 could be
split into a separate glib-legacy package, in order to facilitate the
use of SLOT operator dependencies in dbus-glib. That way, it would be
easy to match glib-2.x and not have to worry about trying not to match
glib-1.x.
