question about SqueakMap and prerequisites

Is there a mechanism for Squeak Map where I can create a "package" that 
identifies prerequisites of other packages on Squeak Map before they 
can be installed?

For example, let's say I have package A and package B.  Package B 
requires that package A be installed first for proper operation.  Is 
there a way for package B to specify that package A is installed as a 
prerequisite of installing B?

I saw the SAR stuff on the SWIKI and although that looks interesting, 
it looks like I'd be distributing both package A and package B together 
in the SAR with a preamble to manage order during installation.  But 
that's not the approach I would prefer because, for this example, 
package A hardly ever changes and does not need to be continually 
distributed with each package B update.

That was probably way more wordy than needed....
