Fully agreed. I threw together the dependencies.module mainly to see if we 
could avoid having each module in 4.7 adding its own handling. Over the 
weekend Adrian agreed to take over maintainance. We've eliminated the idea 
of a dependencies hook, looking instead to metadata files. The idea is 
putting in place a 4.7 solution that pilots approaches for core.
