That seems reasonable, since broken dependencies for 'dev' profiles
aren't fatal anyway.
It's also worth noting that we could do much more extensive
dependency checks if we moved them to the server side. For example,
we could check for problems in reverse dependencies such as those
encountered by some people commenting on bug 244511 about missing
mit-krb5 or heimdal keywords when e2fsprogs-libs was first stabilized.
