Comment (by doc.holliday):

 This is what I came up with so far, please let me know if I am on the
 right track, before I get carried away.

 QualifiedPackageName is probably not the right things to use here, as we
 might want to do things like */*[.!exclude=virtual/*] or something, for
 which we will need PackageDepSpec, right?

 But, I don't seem to be able to easily use parse_user_package_dep_spec, as
 it needs env, which is not available inside
 remove_trailing_square_bracket_if_exists. I can add it to both of them,
 but then envless_parse_package_dep_spec (which also uses
 remove_trailing_square_bracket_if_exists) is not happy.

 Is there another way to proceed here? Should I use make_dep_spec or some
