Please provide more intelligent package dependancies in opkg. E.g. an inclusive OR. a package that depends on illume will not get installed when shr-illume is installed.

Opkg should support something like
Depends: illume|shr-illume

The ',' (comma) will have higher priority than the '|' (or) so the Depends line can be exteded futher like before.

Please, also consider excluding/blocking dependencies, i.e. when package x would like to be installed, it is not possible as long as package y is installed. See http://trac.shr-project.org/trac/ticket/334 for example.

The first problem is a problem with the shr recipe. It should state that it provides illume

opkg can already keep one package from being installed when there is some type of overlap.
