 Just added myself to the CC list to indicate my support for this ticket
 and the patch by j3h.

 BTW note that the Gentoo Linux `emerge` command also has a similar flag:

 --onlydeps (-o)
     Only merge (or pretend to merge) the dependencies of the packages
 specified, not the packages themselves.
