Yes, that is what they are going to be. Right now nALFS could implement
the requires/utilizes elements within a single profile run, but not
really across runs very safely.

I intend to rebuild the nALFS package logging data files to allow it to
store more information, with the side effect that the packageinfo
elements will become fully functional.
