[Slackbuilds-users] REQUIRES info

Now that REQUIRES field reached master branch, and there seems to be
updates going in where the dependency list is being removed from
READMEs: would it make sense to write a little summary about it?

It seems that the REQUIRES field contains a full list of direct and
indirect dependencies, optional and suggested packages, and then some.
And those in ASCII order (uppercase before lowercase), which is a
valid build order.

Is this correct?
