Message Jared,

There is some code in there to work with PySQLite's iterable objects
that it returns. It doesn't return a normal list but a class that
acts like a list or that can be accessed like a dictionary. Many parts
of the code were sensitive to the difference so the results from
fetchall() are dumped into a real list there. The DB API 2.0 dictates
that fetchall returns a list like object so this code should not
impact other compliant DB APIs.

Otherwise, solveDependancy() returns a list of tuples containing n, v,
r, e, a, and size. Where the package idicated by the tuple will
provide the needed requirement that was passed in to
