How to handle dependencies:
1) Add --require parameter for all types
- Special handling in cdist-type-emulator
+ Everything on one line
2) Add __require type
+ No change in core
- Type influences core
- Additional line
- Core needs to know about requirements
3) cdist-require as a seperate executable
+ No change in cdist-type-emulator
- new behaviour
- first time cdist-xxx dependency in types
4) require="" environment variable for cdist-type-emulator
+ on one line / same context
+ special handling is ok for special case
+ doesn't touch parameters (i.e. type still has full control)
Result: Use version 4.
