[development] drupal install/dependencies

I added a small include file as an example phase/stage runner for the
drupal install effort. It uses the dependency.inc from drpkg what I
presented in Amsterdam.


I keep those in the bryght svn repository, thanks Adrian, since it is
too early to even try it for core, especially since 4.7 is around the
corner, although this thing isn't going to interfere at all with any
normal drupal services.

The main idea is to execute the different phase callbacks, like install,
configure, ... in dependency order. The latter is ensured by

I presume that there exists a PACKAGES file, akin to debian's one,
describing the collection of packages and their dependencies, and that
each package has a set of files package_name.phase, for example
image.install, implementing the callback, validation and error callbacks
required. (sounds bad, isn't it)


Please use this thread on the web:

Any opinions?
