Why not a simple dependency on Alien-Sisyphusion-Gtk2WebKitdlls

I considered that with another issue a year or two ago (when BrowserUk suggested much the same thing) - but I found that Strawberry's PPM utility took no notice of the "REQUIRE NAME" entry. So I canned the idea without giving it much more thought.
Tonight I discovered that Strawberry's PPM does however honour the "DEPENDENCY NAME" entry. (I guess Strawberry's ppm is not modern enough to know about "REQUIRE NAME".)

So ... I 'll =~ s/REQUIRE NAME/DEPENDENCY NAME/g in the PPD files and package.xml, and go with the approach you've suggested. Thanks !!
Might get a bit messy with AciveState perls if they decide to make "DEPENDENCY NAME" obsolete. They haven't done that yet, have they ?
