To get that into an MC package, you would have to put your new classes 
in a new category: have a Collections-Misc category that they all go in 
rather than putting any in Collections-Unordered.  I realize that this 
isn't ideal, but it's the best we can do for now.

However, that's a somewhat separate issue from dependencies.  You 
shouldn't really use Monticello dependencies between packages that 
aren't tightly related - really they're meant more as a "bundle" system 
than as a configuration management system.  SqueakMap *ought* to handle 
the kind of dependency you want, but that hasn't been implemented yet.  
Maybe the best thing you could do is dive into the SqueakMap UIs (the 
web server and the Package Loader) and implement it... I have the 
modified model code somewhere.
