As has been discussed elsewhere a few months ago, dependency resolution 
should be outsourced to an established SAT 
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boolean_satisfiability_problem> solving 
lib, to avoid re-inventing a notoriously difficult wheel. This is what 
all the serious package managers have been moving towards, after 
invariably hitting problems (much like dub) trying to roll-their-own.
