That's too magic for now.  Once a feature goes into OPAM, it can't ever leave 
easily, so minimal steps!

But some variation of `opam info lwt -f available-versions` is probably what 
you want.  We could expose the dependencies via that and make it suitable for 

There's a git-like extension mechanism built into OPAM, which is that 'opam 
foo' will execute 'opam-foo' if the sub-command isn't known.  Much of the 
workflow stuff can/should be shell scripts  that just call OPAM commands and 
glue them together.
