the longdesc comes from what i've written in the catalogue description.

the catalogue could (it seems to me) actually have a "requires" tag,
which could then be processed into the tlpdb entry.  i'll pass the idea
past my fellow ctanners.

it would, after all, keep me in a job ... i've only got about 10 weeks'
outstanding work on the catalogue at present ;-)
