Certainly not in a rpm/dpkg type fashion where you can request version X 
of a library, an smtp server and postgresql v8.2.1.  I believe, although 
i haven't done it myself, that you can include the entire dependency 
_inside_ the package and specify it to be installed only if it doesn't 
already exist.  But since there is no real central repository for 
windows packages, not really surprising.

Haven't seen anything that would excite anyone with Vista.  The changing 
permissions/roles with Vista has provided frustrations, but no 
excitement. :)
