If you look at the syntax of sbopkg queuefiles, it's not just simply a
list of dependencies but ON/OFF flags, dep options, etc. So we cannot
just utilize REQUIRES like that but some modifications are needed.

Ideally, I think Mauro Giachero's queuefiles git repo should be
maintained in parallel with slackbuilds.org git repo. It would only be
updated when new SlackBuilds be added though. With the new REQUIRES,
maintaining a repo like that would not be so difficult as before I
