Very true. It took me a few readings of the man page and trying various
options to fully understand hoorex.

Using hoorex without any other options shows me what packages depend on the
target mentioned on the command line. If one of those packages is higher up
the list from the target I move it to preceed the package depending on it.
This appears to be working for me. If sbopkg chokes somewhere processing the
queue list I'll fix those instances as necessary.

I'm learning a lot from all of you and appreciate your comments.

Best regards,
