Examples sere better than descriptions:

lash-git: provides=('lash=0.6.0')
calf-git: depends=('fluidsynth' 'libglade' 'lash>=0.6.0')

namcap calf-git-20090406-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz
calf-git E: Dependency detected and not included (lash-git) from
files ['usr/bin/calfjackhost']
calf-git W: Dependency included and not needed (lash)

There are many more packages that can use a number of different packages as dependencies, not just normal and git versions.
Namcap should be able to handle this using provides=() and depends=(), versioned as well as unversioned.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
namcap 2.2-2
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

namcap already handles that, if I read correctlly. A problem subsisted in the treatment of versioned provides. This commit should fix the remaining issues, please test.
