This, of course, is why package management systems like RPM and Deb
end up having "provides". This would allow Seaside-Base to require
"http-adaptor" or something and each of those packages to provide
"http-adaptor". The package manager can then look for possibilities
and prompt if it finds more than one.

Not saying you need to go that route, but it's probably the
"traditional" solution.
