I was tempted even to add Recommends now and wait patiently until it's
implemented... but it turns down that I can't. The specification reads 
"Any unknown fields will cause the whole stanza to be skipped." Ugh.  
Though, thankfully, it's not really implemented this way: adt-run 
appears to be ignoring unknown fields.
