Should dependency labels specify roles or primitives? Currently they're
an uncomfortable mix of both.
Roles would look something like:
Primitives are pretty much what we have now, except that what we have
now relies upon all sorts of magic assumptions, because build:, run:
etc aren't proper primitives (run:, for example, means something like
required-before-use+target-arch+target-destination-type:, and build:
Are we really comfortable with the existing solution, where developers
get something that's not exactly primitive and not exactly role based,
and where there're all kinds of weird package-manager-handled extra
If we're going to straighten it out, now's the best time to do so.
